The competition will be judged in each country by the public and a jury of industry leaders, with the UK panel including internationally renowned designer Tom Dixon and Central St Martins Professor Nicholas Rhodes. Two finalists from each country will then be flown to the Hôtel du Marc, Veuve Clicquot’s hotel in Reims, France, for the International Final, judged by an influential judging panel including designers Pablo Reinoso and Ferrucio Laviani.
