European Design Competition

Last days to participate!

Imagine tomorrow's products & submit your project.

Winners Will Be Announced Shortly

Our founder, Paul W. Klipsch, prided himself on always innovating to create an incredible listening experience using beautiful products. This first edition, for those under the age of 30, has the theme "HERITAGE." Young talents will have to tap into the brand's roots to imagine the products of tomorrow (the look of the products, not the technology inside).


Projects must belong to one of the below categories:
ACTIVE SPEAKERS (wireless): create tomorrow’s speaker in the vein of The One and The Three
HEADPHONES: Imagine the new Heritage Inspired headphones (on or over-the-ear) in your own voice


During the plenary meeting, a jury of professionals will designate TWO winners in each category.

1st prize : 5 000€

2nd prize : 2 000€
