ENTERING参赛

Do I need to send the actual product? When?

我需要发送实际产品吗?什么时候?
For the first round of judging, we only accept an entry form, images and video to be submitted, and all applications must be made online. Once the judges have made an initial assessment based on these materials, they will select Finalists to participate in the next round of judging. At this time, you will be invited to send your actual product (or scale model / prototype) if it meets certain weight/size restrictions. Sending a sample or mockup is not a requirement for the final round of judging, but it is highly recommended. If you are unable to send a 3D sample of your design, you will be able to submit longer videos and mounted storyboards to aid in the presentation of your entry.

首轮作品评审时,只需递交一份参赛申请表、图像和视频,而且所有申请活动都必须在线完成。评审员对这些材料做出首次评估后,选出决赛作品参加第二轮评审。只有这时才需要递送实际产品,或按比例缩略之模型/原型,具体要根据产品的重量和尺寸而定。末轮评审并不要求运送样品或模型,但仍极为欢迎。如不能发送设计的三维样品,则须递交长篇视频和装裱好的故事版以辅助末轮竞赛申请。

 

Please note, products submitted for the second round of judging will become part of The Henry Ford Museum's permanent collection.

请注意,递交参加末轮评审的产品将进入亨利·福特博物馆收藏。

 

What do you mean by technical specs / production method?

技术参数/生产方法是指什么?
Technical specs would be a more detailed description of product features than you would put in the size/dimension or What is it? fields. For instance, if you’re entering a car the specs might be engine size, horsepower, etc. Production method would include things like injection molding, extrusion, thermal forming etc. If you feel the specific question doesn’t make sense for your category, just leave it as n/a.

技术参数就是除尺寸大小/维度外,一些更具体的产品特性说明,更准确地定义它是什么,适用于什么领域。比如,如果你递交一款车的设计参加竞赛,那么技术参数就是引擎大小、马力等。生产方法则包括制模、挤压成型、热成型等。若觉某个特别问题不适用于你参数的种类,则填写n/a不适合。

 

What is a "design credit"?

什么叫“设计信誉?
This is where you list all the individual names (or teams if you prefer) of the people that contributed to the design you are submitting on their behalf.

你所递交之设计除你自己之外,所有其他个人或团队的名字,须在参赛申请书上某处列出。此某处为设计信誉。

 

How should I list the design credits if the design team is in-house?

如果设计团队为企业内部,怎么填写设计信誉一栏呢?
You should list the company as a design credit and also as the client/manufacturer.

应该把公司列为一种设计信誉,同时也是客户/制造商。

 

Our design team is in-house. Is it still ok for the manufacturer’s name and logo to appear in the entry?

我们设计团队是企业内部的。这种情况下页可以在作品中显示制造商的名称和标识吗?
Yes, names or logos of manufacturing companies/clients may appear if they are inherent to the product. If the design team has its own identity though, you may NOT include its name or logo. Also, don’t refer in the entry form to “the in-house design team.” Just use “design team.”

是的。制造商/客户的名称和标识如果是产品不可分割的一部分,则可以出现在申请作品中。但如设计团队有自己的特征,则不可以显示其名称或标识。同时,也不能再参赛申请表中填入“企业内部设计团队”,只需填写“设计团队”即可。

 

I am a student, which entry form should I use?

我是名学生,应填写哪份参赛申请表呢?
Students should use the general entry form.

学生应填写通用参赛申请表。

 

How do I know if my design should be entered as a concept or a product category?

怎么知道我的设计应该申请概念奖,还是申请某项产品类设计奖项?
If your design is scheduled for production, you cannot enter it as a concept. If it doesn’t meet the distribution requirements because it’s not yet in production, you must wait and enter it the following year.

如你的设计即将投入生产,则不能申请概念奖。如因尚未投产而不能满足销售要求,则须等到下一年再参加此IDEA设计奖竞赛。

 

What does “in distribution” mean?

“销售中”是什么意思?
In distribution means it’s available for purchase through normal sales channels. For the most part, this means the general public should be able to find it and purchase it. Certain items like planes, expensive medical equipment, etc. will be considered in distribution if orders have been taken from the end client.

“销售中”是指通过正常销售渠道可以购买得到。大多情况下,是指一般大众应该能够找得到,也购买得到。一些类似飞机、昂贵医疗设备等产品的“在销售中”则指通过订单能买得到。

 

Is it ok to include text on the images?

在图像中写入文章说明可以吗?
Yes, except on the glamour shot. You will also be able to provide image captions in the software online. Also consider creating a PDF storyboard instead.

可以,但在大张清晰特写照片上不可以。也可在在线软件上写入图像标题。也可以考虑作份PDF格式的故事版。

 

Can I enter the same design in more than one category?

可以用同一份设计申请多种类别的奖项吗?
Yes, but you must pay separate entry fees.

可以,但须分别支付申请费。

 

Can the same design win in more than one category?

同一款设计可以赢得多种类别的奖项吗?
Yes, but not in two product categories (i.e. not in both Entertainment and Personal Accessories). The same design can win in a product category as well as Research, Strategy, Social Impact, and Interactive Product Experiences.

可以,但非同属产品类别,比如娱乐和个人配饰产品类别。同一款设计可以即得一种产品类别奖项,也得设计研究奖项,设计战略奖项,或社会影响力奖项,抑或是互动产品体验奖项。

 

Can I enter a family of products as one entry?

可以拿一组产品作为一款设计申请奖项吗?
Yes! Make sure the whole family is in the glamour shot.

当然可以!确保整组产品都拍入一整张清晰特写照片中。

 

PAYMENT 付款

How do I pay late fees?

若申请迟交,费用如何支付?
If you submit a late entry, the online entry software will automatically add the late fee to your account and you will be responsible for settling your account prior to the final deadline.

若参赛作品迟交,则在线申请软件会自动从您账户上划走迟交费用,因此需要在作品提交最终期限之前将账户设好。

 

Other than entry fees, what fees will winners be obligated to pay?

除申请费,获奖者还需支付别的费用吗?
None! View the list of additional winner benefits and note that there are many optional ways of maximizing your award's exposure in the form of advertising but we do not require winners to pay anything extra for Yearbook inclusion, certificates, ceremony attendance, logos, etc.

当然不!请上网查阅获奖者额外益处列单,并请注意有许多以广告形式最大化曝光您得奖的消息,但我们并不要求获奖人支付作品收入年鉴费用、也不要求支付获奖证书费用、出息颁奖仪式的费用也没有,等等。

 

Do I have to pay before I can enter?

费用是在申请前支付吗?
You can create your online account and upload all your entry materials in advance of paying. As long as the payment is received and entry submitted before the regular deadline, no late fees will be assessed.

你可以设立网上账户,支付申请费之前把所有申请材料发出去。只有在最终递交期限之前把申请费付了、把申请材料递交上去,则不需要支付任何作品迟交费用。

 

What forms of payment do you accept?

你接受什么形式的费用?
We accept Visa, M/C, Amex, Check drawn in US funds, and Wire/Bank transfer.

Visa、M/C、Amex、美元支票、通过银行转账汇款都可以。

Otherwise, your only cost to display your winning product is for shipping and handling through the designated conference exhibition services company.

只要空间允许,金、银和铜奖作品都将受邀展示陈列。若发来作末轮评审用的产品样品或按比例缩略的模型或原型,美国工业设计师协会将代为运输到展览场地进行展示。其他情况者,则需通过会议和展览服务公司运送展品,自费展示获奖作品。

 

Do I need to attend the conference or be present in the gallery in order for my design to be on display?

No, your design can be on display whether or not you attend.
