Everyone who has received one or more iF DESIGN AWARDS in the last three years is automatically given a position in the iF ranking. Regardless of whether your ranking is in the two digit or three digit range or if you even hold a top position: a position in the iF ranking indicates excellent design because everyone who is included in the iF ranking has proven their outstanding design skills as a participant in the iF DESIGN AWARDS.
Winners receive 20 points for each iF DESIGN AWARD, 100 points for each iF gold award. In February, after the iF design award night, the ranking will be updated based on these points received. This includes all results from the last three award years.
The iF ranking is divided into three categories:
- iF ranking creative
(In-house designer, external design office, communication design agencies, architects, interior designers)
- iF ranking company
(manufacturers, contracting organization)
- iF ranking university
(results from the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD, iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD)
If a competition entry is registered jointly by more than one participant, we will attribute the points to the first name and address in the registration form.
Companies with individual departments within the same country or network agencies with individual branches within the same country will be treated as one entity under one logo. If requested, companies and agencies with branches in different countries can be treated as one transnational brand. We reserve the right to change the iF ranking as needed.
