Event description
HOT NEW NEXT is a dynamic competition celebrating the innovative ideas moving design forward.

About this Event

This "Shark Tank" -style program will offer four pre-selected contestants the chance to present a rapid-fire pitch of a compelling new design-related concept or product to an expert panel and live audience. Judges and the audience will vote, and regional winners (Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver B.C.) will be featured in GRAY magazine, receive off-site mentorship by our judges, and advance to the championship round — held on the GRAY Stage at IDS Vancouver — to compete for a cash prize and the designation of truly being the next big thing in Pacific Northwest design.

HOT NEW NEXT IS SPONSORED BY: Chown Hardware, Design Within Reach, and Seattle Design Center.
