Specsavers Eyewear Design Competition

  • Specsavers are looking for designs that shout style but that are also wearable. They should encourage people to wear their specs with pride and help the wearer to express their individuality. They can be of any colour and pattern, or you might prefer something simpler where the shape does the talking.
  • Wherever your imagination leads you, remember, they also have to be practical, functional and able to be manufactured.
  • The end products can be made out of a range of materials that include acetate, stainless steel, nickel, silver or titanium, cellulose proprionate or grilamide (nylon).
  • But if that sounds a bit daunting, don’t worry: the finalists will work closely with an eyewear designer and product developer to bring their designs to life to ensure that they comply with optical industry standards.
  • You should produce a minimum of two different designs and a maximum of six – obviously the more you submit, the more the judges are likely to see something that they love! Specsavers would also like you to come up with a name for the new eyewear collection.

The Prize

  • Each winner will receive a cash prize of £2,000, as well as having their design or designs manufactured and professionally photographed.
  • One overall winner, who most impressed the judges at interview, will also be flown out to the Far East, all expenses paid, to see their designs being made.
