YouFab calls for fabrication that provoke new questions and challenge established norms.
The YouFab Award seeks and evaluates works that promote the asking of new questions and push the limits of current 'Fab' models. We want to challenge the status quo, fight “sound judgement”, and hack “common sense”.
We look forward to gathering works that align to this spirit with great anticipation.
YouFab is category-free. All works are acceptable for submission, whether they fall under the category of art, performance, architecture, or a multidisciplinary area. Products and services are also acceptable.
If the work is in it’s draft or prototypal stage, we will base our evaluation on the way it has been attempted and it’s future potential.
Works that have already been published or released are encouraged. Applications from individuals, groups, and/or businesses are permitted.
