What our jurors say:

Fritz Frenkler

Fritz Frenkler

"The iF DESIGN AWARD recorded an unprecedented increase in registrations this year. Never before had Ralph Wiegmann and his team faced a greater challenge. This reflects a strong vote of confidence in the work of iF and the jury, as was displayed by both the world of industry and the creative industries with their participation. At the same time, the team of judges was impressed by the meanwhile considerable improvement in the design and workmanship quality of many of the entries submitted. This makes it necessary to recognize, highlight and evaluate the details. And this can only be done by experts who are able to judge objectively and thus award the world's most important design prize."

"To me, it is always a gift to be part of the iF jury session, because I ususally do not get the opportunity to discuss with colleagues for days and still come to terms and agree on a decision together!"

"The iF jury is a real good opportunity to both - the designers who attend this award and also for the juror who has to judge these projects. It is a good opportunity to compare ourselves."
