design competition iF Design Award has a reputation as an internationally recognized sign of design excellence since its founding 1953. For a designer, winning an iF Award can launch a career or take it to the next level. For a company, it can be the key to breaking into a new market or getting valuable media attention and respect.
The iF Design Award provides participants with opportunities to achieve worldwide success with their works in the categories of:
• Interior Architecture
• Professional Concept
• Service Design / UX
Each year, iF invites a number of internationally renowned personalities from the areas of design, business and education to participate in a three-day jury session. Behind closed doors, each entry will be thoroughly investigated, analysed and, most importantly, discussed. Each entry will be assessed on the basis of clear criteria.
Entry fees for this competition start from 250 EUR per entry, that's approximately 265 USD.
Participation is open worldwide to manufacturers, planners, designers, entrepreneurs, architects, agencies, developers, constructors and communication design providers.
iF supports its award winners with a unique services package, e.g. International Exhibitions, the iF Design App and the iF World Design Guide platform in the future.
Prizes will be awarded at a special Awards ceremony, the iF Design Awards Night at BMW Welt in Munich (Germany) on 9 March 2018. This glamorous and exciting event will kick off the new design year and will support the exchange between experts, designers and entrepreneurs, marketing specialists and architects, representatives of the press and other communicators.
