Design Competition

Your design for the 2023 parade!

This year, things will be different because this time YOU will get the chance to give the parade it’s look!

From February 1 to 28, 2023, we are looking for the best design ideas for the artwork of the “Rave The Planet Parade 2023 – MUSIC IS THE ANSWER“. All creatives with a passion for electronic music are invited to participate – no matter if you are a pro designer or a hobbyist. Creativity rules!


  • 2 overnight stays, incl. breakfast, at Hotel Berlin, Berlin ★★★★
  • Travel to Berlin (within Europe)
  • Ride on the official Rave The Planet float, incl. drinks
  • Guest list for all official after parties
  • All for 2 persons


Of course, the winner will also be credited on the official parade poster and will be featured on our website and on social media.  

Procedure of the competition

The competition will run for a total of 4 weeks, from February 01 to 28, 2023. Within this time, each participating person can submit a maximum of two different designs.

After the end of the submission period, our in-house designers will make a preliminary selection of the best entries. These will then be reviewed with the entire Rave The Planet crew and democratically evaluated according to a scoring system. The design with the highest score will win the competition and the winner will be notified personally. The public announcement will be made in mid-March.

Then all actual required formats will be worked out. On a voluntary basis, the winner can do the elaboration of the design for different formats himself or herself, in whole or in parts. Our professional in-house designers are available to assist or can take over completely.

What are the evaluation criteria?

There are four main evaluation criteria:

  • Creativity & originality: Is the design original? Is it unique? Is it fresh?
  • Reference: Does the design clearly and intelligibly communicate the message? Is there any recognizable reference to techno culture?
  • Power & impact: Does the design attract the desired attention? Does it cause euphoria and anticipation? Is it touching? Is it inviting?
  • Style & technique: Is the design well-crafted? Is it versatile? Is it easy to animate?
