Sunglass design contest launched by Polaroid Eyewear

Polaroid Eyewear has launched a new competition encouraging students, professionals and prospective designers to create a pair of sunglasses inspired by trends from past or future decades – between 1930 and 2020. Polaroid Eyewear will produce the best designs under its ‘Best Under The Sun’ Signature Sunglass Collection to be launched globally in Spring 2013.

The first 'Best Under The Sun' collection was launched in Spring 2011 with ten original designs from the Polaroid archives featuring sunglasses from the 1930’s to the 1980’s. Participants can submit designs online from 1 July to 30 September with submissions being featured on the ‘Best Under The Sun’ webpage and Facebook page. The online community along with an expert jury at Polaroid Eyewear will select up to ten best designs and the winners will be announced by April 2012.
