“Fab = creativity that transcends and combines the digital and physical realms” .
YouFab is a global award that recognizes and celebrates creative works and inventions that stem from powerful collaborations between digital and physical fabrication.
YouFab is a global award competition that evaluates work created using digital fabrication tools, such as 3D printers and laser cutters, from a creative perspective. In 2015, 152 works were submitted from 26 countries around the world.
The entry period this year is from August 1, 2016 until October 31, 2016.
The award calls for submissions that leverage both the digital and physical. These submissions can be anything from products, art, architecture, or intangible projects such as performing arts, events or workshops.
A condition of entry is that the submitted work be in its completed/operational form created with such machines as digital fabrication tools and not left in the conceptual phase of design plans or proposals.
Submissions can be something that has already been launched, or something yet to be unveiled.
