Rolls-Royce Young Designer Competition

The Results

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce the global winners in its Young Designer Competition, which invited children around the world to design their dream Rolls-Royce of the future.

In all the competition saw more than 5,000 entries submitted online by children in over 80 countries around the world.

Global Winners

There are four category winners, who hail from China, Japan, France and Hungary and range in age from six to 16.

Each will each enjoy a chauffeur-driven journey with their best friend in a Rolls-Royce to school.

The designs of the winners have all been transformed into beautiful digitally-rendered illustrations by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team, using the same software and processes as they would in a ‘real’ Rolls-Royce design project.

UK Winner

Rolls-Royce is also delighted to announce the UK winner which is the Rolls-Royce Bumblebee 5000, designed by 11-year-old Sofia.

Sofia’s design has been transformed into a beautiful digitally-rendered illustration by the Rolls‑Royce Bespoke Design Team. She will also enjoy a chauffeur-driven journey with her best friend in a Rolls-Royce to school. In addition Rolls-Royce is donating a complete Greenpower electric car kit to Sofia’s school, enabling its participation in future Greenpower motorsport events.

Highly Commended

A further three entries have been awarded Highly Commended with each child's design being transformed into beautiful digitally-rendered illustrations by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team.

Thank You

A thank you to everyone who took part from the Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

On behalf of myself and everyone at Rolls-Royce, I would like to thank every single Young Designer who entered the competition, and for all the thought, hard work and creativity that went into their designs. There is some amazing talent out there, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of our entrants went on to work as car designers one day – perhaps even at Rolls-Royce.

The most important thing I’ve learned from this competition is that whatever our circumstances, we have the power to create amazing things, because our imagination is always free to fly. I hope the children who took part will recognise this, too, and that it will be something positive they can take from their pandemic experience.
