City Lab is proud to announce the launch of the 2020 Victorian Design Challenge. The E-Waste Challenge aims to highlight the capacity and responsibility of designers to contribute to shifting behaviour, raising awareness, redesigning products, or devising smart end-of-life solutions that reduce the negative impacts of e-waste.

Creative Victoria and the NGV are offering Winners support tailored for each category to prototype and further their idea including a $20,000 prize for the winning professional design idea and $5,000 for the wining tertiary student design idea.
