The Prix Émile Hermès award is designed to support innovation, and promote young talents whose forward-looking creations reflect evolving societies and lifestyles worldwide.
Every three years, the Prix Émile Hermès invites young professional designers from all over the world to design the objects of tomorrow, on a given theme. Beyond sheer creativity, each design must also acknowledge two of the Hermès Foundation's core spheres of action such as the environment and traditional skills.
Each designer is invited to create a prototype financed by the Foundation D'Entreprise Hermès, from which the same jury will select three winners, each receiving a cash prize designed to launch or further their career: 50,000 € for the winner, 25,000 € for the runner-up, and 15,000 € for the third place. The winners' work will feature in a special exhibition and in its catalogue and it will be promoted by the Foundation D'Entreprise Hermès around the world.
