One kaiser-era marine hall in the middle of Hamburg's harbor, (Schuppen 52), 58 international jurors and 5,575 entries from 59 countries in total: After an exhausting yet exhilarating three-day examination and judging period, our jury has chosen the winning entries.
This year's jury included entries from 59 countries around the globe, with even more entries than last year. Alongside the European core markets, the iF DESIGN AWARD also received entries from all six inhabited continents, including first-time submissions from countries in Africa such as Mauritania and Nigeria.
Two of our newer categories, Professional Concept and Service Design/UX, experienced a high rate of year-on-year growth (19% and 18% respectively). In iF's home country of Germany, entries to the Professional Concept category grew by 23%.
Other category/country combinations, such as China/Hong Kong and Packaging, enjoyed exceptional growth rates (in this case almost double the number of entries in one year!). Korea also saw an 80% increase in Service Design submissions.
The winners are preparing for the elegant awards ceremony on 10 March in the BMW Welt in Munich. The very best of all winning designs – our 75 gold winners – will be honored in grand style onstage.
After 10 March we will announce all winners here on the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE.
