The 2008 Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass Competition is upon us and this year there’s a bit of a twist. As in previous years, the brief was straightforward – to create a martini glass, inspired by the Bombay Sapphire heritage.
21 international finalists have been selected from 21 different countries and the winner and runners-up will be announced at the London Design Festival, as judged by an esteemed panel of designers and experts, including our very own Editor at Large, Suzanne Trocme. More than simply a great accolade, the winner will receive £10,000.

The twist comes in the form of an online vote for a new award, called the People’s Prize. The power of the public vote doesn’t stretch to a financial award but it will qualify the winner to be included in the final 6 shortlist, from which the overall winner will be chosen.
