iF DESIGN AWARD 2021 - New jury process, new benefits

In difficult times, trust counts. Since 1953 the iF label has been a reliable sign of good design, awarded in Germany and renowned worldwide, both by consumers and within the design community.

Designers, manufacturers, architects and interior designers who want their product or project evaluated by internationally recognized design experts have turned to the iF DESIGN AWARD for decades. They do so to prove their company puts design in the focus of its business, and to attract international attention. Winning an iF DESIGN AWARD will help you stand out from the competition, improve your branding and reach new target groups.

Now we have changed the iF DESIGN AWARD 2021 - from jury to benefits - to reflect the increased digital times and make it even more transparent. Here are the most important benefits at a glance:


1.       TWO FOR ONE Special: Every second registration is for free!

2.       New jury process including new criteria system: 50% of entries will qualify for the final jury

3.       New benefits: Scorecards for each entry, jury report for winnners, iF WORLD DESIGN INDEX, publication and ranking points for finalists

4.       More categories and disciplines: User Experience and User Interface as two new disciplines to reflect more aspects of global design
