About the Organization

RoGUILTLESSPLASTIC is the international project, conceived in 2019, founded and curated by Rossana Orlandi and Nicoletta Orlandi Brugnoni.

The project starts from the conviction that Plastic is not guilty. Its abuse and misuse has nonetheless created one of the most pressing environmental issues plaguing the Planet Earth today. The project’s purpose is to inspire the international creative community to explore a new philosophy of design and production using innovative materials that derive from re-Waste, and to discover the infinite possibilities for its transformation. In the first two editions, the project focuses on plastic waste only, to later expand to include other kinds of materials.

About the Prize

RoGUILTLESSPLASTIC is a project-manifesto that through design, art, planning, technological–scientific research, industry and communication, introduces and disseminates various cultures and concepts dedicated to proposing solutions that promote new lifestyles and responsible choices. It consists, among others, of three main events that are presented at each Milano Design Week. One of the most important of these is the Ro Plastic Prize.

The Ro Plastic Prize is the International Award that targets an increasingly broad public and challenges the worldwide communities of designers, innovators, entrepreneurs, startuppers, changemakers, creators, scientists, researchers, developers, schools, universities, industry and communication experts who are passionate about making an extraordinary impact to propose innovative projects in the field of re-Waste.

The challenge includes specific categories in which all creative talents can participate, no matter their age or professional background. During the Milano Design Week, the Ro Plastic Prize Finalists will be the protagonists of a special exhibition curated by Nicoletta Orlandi Brugnoni. The International Jury composed of professionals and experts will select the winners, one for each category, who will receive a prize of EUR 10,000 during the Award Ceremony.

For the 2023 edition, the Ro Plastic Prize launches three new categories representing common high priority issues, involving re-Waste. Applicants are invited to propose projects to one or more of the categories and may submit pre-existing works and/or those submitted to other competitions. Participation in the Award is free of charge, open to all ages and to individuals or teams from any country or field. Parental consent is required for any minor at the time of registration.


The Ro Plastic Prize is open to creative talents from all countries, backgrounds, curricula and ages. Parental consent is required if the applicant is a minor at the time of registration.
