MCI Contest

MCI Contest was a competition organized by Material ConneXion Italy with the support of Wired and focuses on the creative use of new materials produced in Italy. “Concepts and ideas for the application of innovative materials” was the theme of the MCI Contest (which premiered at the Wired Next Fest), and was aimed at promising, young fashion and art designers.

You can find the article submission site on Wired Italy. The purpose was to advertise the products, giving the opportunity to all young designers and architects between 18 and 45 years to join the site (those who wanted could also log in using Facebook, Twitter or Google plus), and using the appropriate form to send the project so that it could be reviewed and, if deemed valid,  automatically added by the administrator. The site contained several pages explaining the project, what they did with the presentation of certain products and the part about the contest itself. In this section you could view a brief description of the contest, a slide of the projects involved and a list of the top 3 students.

This was accomplished directly on the page of the project by a vote, permitted only to users who had registered from 1 to 3. The ranking was updated automatically processing this data.
