During 2010 and 2011, Grupo Erum, in partnership with L’Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny d’Alcoi, ran the Clothes Hangers and Window Display Design Contest, held in memory of Don Emilio Erum, who founded the company and was the driving force behind its plastic injection operations.
The competition, now in its third year, gives students attending the Alcoi-based design school the chance to put forward new conceptual ideas and designs that promote the aesthetic and emotive aspects of the product as well as its functionality, sizing flexibility and market viability.
The jury is expected to meet on 10 April to pick the winners of the third contest. The award ceremony will take place on 11 April at the L’Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny d’Alcoi.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy, Erum remains firmly committed to young designers of the future by investing in them, giving them the opportunity to participate in a professional forum and serving as a platform from which they can launch their ideas and creations.
In addition to this, during the 2011 competition, Grupo Erum awarded a diploma and shared cash prize to window display projects submitted jointly by students from L’Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny d’Alcoi.
