The Design Grand Prix competition will have 2 key voting stages:

All entries will be placed on the Design Grand Prix website page. The general public will be able to vote for their favorite design on the website. We will endeavour to keep this fair and have measures in place to deter multiple voting. The designs with the most votes (approx. 10) will be short listed along with a selection from Savoir Beds of the strongest designs.

The complete shortlist (approx. 30 designs) will then be presented to the judges. The shortlist will be also announced online. The judges will see the complete shortlist of entries and from there choose the 4* best designs.

Savoir Beds will make the 4* selected headboards. The finished headboards will be shown to the judges. They will vote once again and the overall winner will be selected.

* The number of selected designs may vary.
