Design Challenge was organised in cooperation with product design departments at four universities in the region: University of Zagreb, University of Sarajevo, University of Arts Belgrade, Megatrend University.

Jury has chosen winner unanimously – Zdenko Vukoja (42) amateur designer from Lipik (Croatia). Second place has won Darko Markovic, product design student at Megatrend University in Belgrade and third, his colleague Damnjan Mitic.
