Your qualified entry – update your data until 19 February 2021

All data you have submitted for your entry will continue to form the basis for the evaluation for the iF Final Jury. However, you have the possibility until 19 February to optimize your data for the presentation:

Reasons to optimize your data would be:

  • Can the description of your entry be improved? Change advertising text into fact based text.
  • Can the description of the criteria be improved? The given scores for one criteria doesn’t reflect the highlights of your entry?
  • Do you have better image material now? Change renderings in image and PDFs into „real“ pictures.
  • Can you optimize the content of your PDF file and make it more meaningful? Are the properties of your entry such as material, ergonomics, processing not yet mentioned?
  • Do you have a new video about your entry now etc.? Change advertising videos into fact based presentation videos. If possible, personal introduction for all types of entries or unboxing of products. (The video does not have to be expensive and can be done with your phone.)
