Prejudging

Prejudging gives you 3 benefits:

a. You may submit your design concept in English, Chinese, German, or in Korean. This helps you save time and cost by avoiding the need to have your work translated into English until the jury admit the concept to final judging.

b. Low submission fee to test the readiness of your design concept since the presentation fee is only applicable if your concept passes the prejudging phase.

c. Submit more design concepts to the award and only pay for the presentation fee for those design concepts that have the potential to win a Red Dot.
