Attention all budding car designers: Citroën's DS3 Design Competition is giving you a chance to see your automotive vision in production. Well, at least the dashboard and roof of your automotive vision. Seeking designs that are daring yet professional, the contest to create a compelling look for the top and front of the DS3 is open to anyone anywhere in the world.

Should you enter, your work will be critiqued by designing eyes from GQ, Louis Vuitton and The Cartier Foundation. If you win, your work will be showcased on an actual DS3 at this year's Paris Motor Show in October and Citroën's C_42 show on the Champs-Elysées.

For more info, a look at the DS3 Portfolio and style advice or inspiration on the "Concept Anti-Retro," check out the Citroën Creative Awards site. And save us an autograph at the show if you win...

      Auto designs critiqued by non-auto entities? I predict the 'winners' will be gaudy.

      they have some amazing concept cars already, how about citroen just put more of that into production cars!

      Haha. Their Mini-faking is getting just too obvious.

      But this is never going to beat the Mini. It doesn't have the chassis for it, and it just has too much of that frenchy ugly.

        I am European, I live in Belgium. French cars are very popular here, but I personally don't like them. In fact I already saw a DS3 on the road.

        But then again, people might like French cars, but generally, those aren't car enthusiasts. People who want a small, sporty luxury-ish car, will not buy a Citroën, they'll buy some from a trendy brand like Mini, BMW 1, soon the Audi A1...

        This car is going to fail, even in countries where French cars are popular. Perhaps only in France some people 'll be waiting for this.

        At least the wheelwells aren't furry.

        And I bet that it doesn't talk to you in an annoying voice.

        @Nico

        If you're not European you don't have any say in this. I suppose you could be European, Nico.

        French designs are appreciated in Europe, what Americans think about them doesn't matter. After all, it's not like you can buy one unless you live here.
