The registration and digital entry submission opens 1 September 2020 and closes 29 November 2020 at 23:55 CET on this website. After that, the 50 best will be provided with a material kit to create and deliver a physical mockup by 1 February 2021. Then the jury will evaluate the physical mock-ups, and the awards will be granted in March 2021.

First of all, you need to be registered on the competition website. Second, you submit a digital mock-up. Name your entry, add images and describe your idea in words. Mention which material you intend to use (choose one of contest materials). Upload images as a jpg or png file (minimum size 1024 x 574 pixels, resolution 72 ppi). Please also include a structural design blueprint as a pdf file. You can also add a video link (optional). When finished, submit your entry before the deadline 29 November 2020. 

From all of the digital entry submissions, the top 50 will be chosen and notified by email in December 2020. You will be asked to respond to that email in a week, and then you will receive a material kit from Stora Enso sent to the address you have provided when registering to the competition. You must deliver a physical mock-up for the final judgement by the jury before the deadline 1 February 2021.
