iF DTA 2020 - Best of the year

The "Best of the year" concepts of the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2020

Good ideas form the basis for a solid start into a better tomorrow. That’s exactly what the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD is about. This iF competition offers international design newcomers a platform on which they can present their creative prospects for the future.

For this year’s iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD, more than 4,700 participants from more than 42 countries took on the challenge with over 10,780 submitted concepts and ideas, out of which 17 can be claimed to be truly visionary. They are honored with the title “Best of the year” and receive prize money for design excellence addressing issues out of the 15 UN Sustainable Development Goals – such as permitting social distancing in times of Covid-19, improving the recycling rate of garbage collection in cities and rehabilitating young stroke patients through an app. We congratulate all winners of these 17 concepts on this special honor!

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 2020 possible. With EUR 25,000 per year, anyone can become a partner in order to supporting young design talents.
