Publish your
Public Value Project

Present your public value project in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE (for free).

Publish your project


This new iF initiative aims to identify, publish, promote and support projects that contribute to our society, which approach an urgent challenge and help to improve conditions.

As we see it as an obligation, we do not charge any fees and we offer a prize of EUR 50,000 for the best projects. In addition, we will make sure to reach out to the global design community, the users of the iF WDG. They have a good feeling for human needs and the power to help promoting valuable projects, specially if design was involved to improve living conditions.

We want to invite you to publish your social projects and involvement to support a specific part of our societies. Every published project in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE March 15 to November 15 will automatically compete for the prize. All published projects stay online and you can keep our audience updated with latest photos and reports.

Companies, design studios, NGOs, foundations, public and other organizations are welcome to submit. Your project should be already established and you can apply with the same project a maximum of two times. Student concepts will not be accepted. Please note: This is not an award and does not follow strict criteria and judging processes. Our intention is to support the civil community with your initiatives and projects.

Sign up until
15 November 2017
