Domus Academy and Prada Kick Off the Prada Journal Competition
Domus Academy is pleased to invite the public to the launch of the Prada Journal – Inner Landscape competition on November 9.
This competition is created by Prada in collaboration with the eyewear company Luxottica and the publishing house Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore.
Begun in 2013, Prada Journal explores contemporary forms of expression developed through social media. Students share images and text that tell a story in line with the poetic theme of the competition.
According to the project website, “The latest edition of the project invites everyone to reflect upon the specific theme of the relationship between one’s inner world and the world outside—the Inner Landscapes of each. To narrate this relationship, Prada Journal has chosen a contemporary language that links text and image, be it a photograph, video, or illustration.
Participating in Prada Journal means contributing to this creative process and generating digital content that expresses one’s inner landscape. Once again, the eyewear from the Prada Journal collection becomes the chosen tool for looking at the world and exploring its every aspect.”
Speaking at the competition’s launch will be:
- Carmen Cappiello, brand manager of Prada Eyewear
- Francesca Modenese, brand manager for Prada at Luxottica
- Max Brun, executive producer of Prada Journal
- Alessandro Manzi and Francesco Ferrari, curators of the social media strategy of Prada Journal
