Congratulation to all winners! Celebrations start on 10 May

To tackle the challenges of our world innovatively, courageously and with our eyes directed to the future, we need brilliant minds that drive us forward - "The CreatiFe Power of Design".
This year we received more entries to the iF DESIGN AWARD 2021 than ever before: almost 10,000 in a total of 9 disciplines. In a time when almost everything is different, the quality of design of these entries was pleasantly high.

Design moves fast and responds to trends. It should be no surprise that the pandemic has shaped many of this year's winners, from a greater focus on hygiene to the fact that many people are spending more time at home.

This year's winners and their designs are a fascinating group: 44 countries across nearly every continent have designed entries that convinced the jurors, from app to z-wave.

Congratulation to all winners! Celebrations start on 10 May
