Early submission discounts to end 31 January

An independent endorsement of design capabilities


Since 2005, the Red Dot Award: Design Concept has become today’s largest and most prestigious award for design concepts at a professional level. In 2016, companies, design studios, universities and designers alike from 60 countries submitted 4,698 of their best innovative ideas and ready to launch products.

With an international jury consisting of experts from diverse fields, the design award serves as a fair, recognised, and indisputable benchmark for creativity and design excellence in the industry.

Every jury member pledges to a “Code of Honour” and is excluded from taking part in the competition. In addition, to avoid conflicts of interest, the jurors may not be employees of the manufacturing industry. This ensures the highest degree of objectivity when selecting the winning designs.

Early submission discounts start from 2 January 2017, prepare and submit entries for the award before 1 February 2017 to take advantage of the discounts.
