How does James Bond’s coolest gadget to save the world look like? Or how do future workplaces use digital communication? And in spite of all this technical development – is there an aid to help us slow down and forget the fear of missing out (FOMO)? And is there a clever and sustainable solution to end poverty?
The smartest answers to these questions will be awarded with the world-renowned iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2019 and win a total of EUR 20,000 in prize money.
Students and graduates of all courses in the field of Design and Architecture are invited to submit their visionary solutions, ideas and concepts free of charge online by 31 July 2019.
A huge thank you goes to SAMSUNG and MINISO, who are sponsoring this second phase of the competition and enriching it with their choice of two themes. Here is an overview of all four topics:
1_ SAMSUNG DESIGN PRIZE 2019 by iF:
Design for Collaboration – new concepts of collaboration tools and solutions for the augmented workplace.
2_ MINISO DESIGN PRIZE 2019 by iF:

3_ What iF design were to help James Bond during his next mission to save the world?
4_ What iF we had to stop sometimes? Design to end the fear of missing out.
An independent panel of international experts judges the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2019 and the corresponding prize money according to clearly defined evaluation criteria.
All award-winning entries will feature in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE (www.ifworlddesignguide.com) – the world's biggest virtual design exhibition – for an unlimited period of time. They will also appear for three years in the iF design app for Android and iOS, which can be downloaded free of charge.
