Online furniture retailer MADE.com has revealed the entry deadline for its Emerging Talent Award 2016 is the end of June, with submissions already taking shape.

The concept, which is now in its fifth year, offers the chance for budding designers to make their mark with a furniture piece, designed specifically to MADE.com’s brief, with the overall winner seeing its product come to life and sold through the company.

The deadline for entries is 30 June 2016 via www.made.com/talentlab/, and will be judged by a panel of five including co-founder and MADE.com CEO, Ning Li.

There are currently 94 entries from a variety of countries from across the globe, including the UK, France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Argentina, Spain and Canada.

Commenting on the award, MADE.com said: “We welcome designers and creatives who consider themselves emerging professionals. The winner will have their piece produced and sold on MADE.COM within 12 months and, we'll publicise their design to our customers. It's an extraordinary opportunity for anyone hoping to kick-start their career.”
