Student Awards

Big opportunities for talented young designers! One award, four topics, two seasons. We've combined our student awards into a single platform for more networking opportunities. This means that our student award no longer has categories but rather four specific tasks per season.

The six-month rotation and the regular update of topics allow us to keep in touch with the latest impulses. That means young designers have more opportunities to react and respond to current events. Our goal is to link the new generation of designers with industry more closely, and offer young talent a platform where they can express their creativity.

The second round of the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2019 will be open from 1 April 2019 on. We are looking for the best ideas from students and young professionals around the world.
