The creative potential of design solutions facing our rapidly changing world are reflected in the "Best of the year" concepts of this year’s iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD’s first round. These six concepts were chosen by our international 43-member jury to be truly visionary and receive prize money for their design excellence addressing issues out of the 15 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The crop of winning concepts includes a children’s app, a school project, a playful generator lamp, camp lighting, a kids’ alarm device and a fire preventing facility. In total, more than 3,300 participants from 49 countries took on the challenge with almost 5,300 submitted entries this round. We congratulate all six winners of these "Best of the year" concepts.
A special thank you goes to our six sponsors – Samsung Electronics, Wonderland, GROHE, Compal Electronics, Dongguan South China Design Innovation Institute, Haier – for making the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2021 possible. With EUR 25,000 per year, anyone can become a partner in order to supporting young design talents.
