Overview – Student Awards

Big opportunities for talented young designers

One award, four topics, two seasons. We've combined our student awards into a single platform for more networking opportunities. This means that our student award no longer has categories but rather four specific tasks per season.

Our first-rate sponsored design prizes HANSGROHE DESIGN PRIZE by iF and HAIER DESIGN PRIZE by iF have been combined with the iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD as separate topics in the new iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD.

The six-month rotation and the regular update of topics allow us to keep in touch with the latest impulses. That means young designers have more opportunities to react and respond to current events.

Our goal is to link the new generation of designers with industry more closely, and offer young talent a platform where they can express their creativity.

Are you a student or recent graduate? Find out more about our current topics for iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017_01 in the following. The registration deadline is 13 January 2017. The next award is already in preparation.
