Studies and projects realised or unrealised in the last five years for boats of any kind and material (leisure, racing, cruising, etc.), or already presented at design competitions, published in trade and non-specialised magazines, may be presented. Title to the project must be declared during the application phase.
The projects may relate to the overall design for a vessel and/or interiors and/or detailed components, propulsion, structure, etc.
