The Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2020, the largest professional design competition for concept in the world, is calling for entries! Designers, design teams, companies, design studios and universities from all over the world are invited to submit prototypes, marketable products, new ideas and design concepts for evaluation and to put their designs to the test.
The Red Dot Award offers winning designers the opportunity to sound out the marketability of future products. The Red Dot label serves customers as an established sign of the design ability of designers, studios or companies and makes the creative competence of a team comparable.
The more than 40 competition categories offer designers a broad spectrum to submit a design solution for almost every situation. New groups such as “Artificial Intelligence”, “3D Printed” and “Virtual and Augmented Reality” promise an exciting future full of possibilities, especially as the extension to visual communication encompasses an even broader spectrum of designs.
All kinds of inventions, novelty designs and aesthetic designs that are not in the market, not produced for sale, non-client projects, and non-executed client projects, before 2 June 2020 can be entered.
All entered works must be the entrant’s own.
Participants who choose to display their prototype or mock-up bears all the costs and risks related to storage and/or return delivery. Prototypes or mock-ups of winning works will be displayed in the Red Dot Design Museum Singapore for the duration of the exhibition.
The jury of the Red Dot Award: Design Concept comes from all parts of the world and, combined with many years of experience, offers an international view on the entries for a fair and balanced assessment. The experts thus do assess every concept individually with regard to their design quality and innovative value.
