BIAAF continues betting on young talent in the final phase of its international contest

BIAAF continues betting on young talent and helps designers from all over the world in the final phase of its competition. 

The situation has been everchanging during the last weeks. We are confined and the whole team has had to adapt to this new situation of working and living on line. We don’t know with certainty when the current status will end. What we know for sure is that the moment it ends we have to be as ready as possible to react quickly.

Every step forward in the competition, every parcel we receive from participants is like a little battle we all win to the pandemia. Now more than ever, BIAAF is committed to keep supporting the designers of the future, generating new opportunities in order to offer them a better, brighter scenario than the one we are facing now. We are convinced that the near future will be truly different, hopefully more caring, sustainable and sympathetic to others around us, and are thrilled to keep working on it despite the circumstances. 

On this edition, with over 1.200 participants, our 30 finalists are coming from 16 different countries, each on a different Coronavirus pandemia stage. We have decided to cope with this exceptional circumstances case by case. With each and everyone of them.

Despite all difficulties, we can announce that the competition is still on and its final phase will take place in 2020, as soon as the circumstances allow it. In the meanwhile BIAAF will continue working harder than ever on this edition discovering, supporting and giving visibility to emerging talent worldwide.
