German Design Award 2015

The aim of the German Design Award is to identify, present and honour unique design trends. A competition that advances the design scene.

Prizes of the international premium prize will go to topquality products and projects from product and communication design, design personalities and newcomers, all of whom are pioneering in German and international design landscape. 
And not only a jury of experts will vote. For the Public’s Choice prize all design enthusiasts can cast a vote. 

As an industry competition for the industry that highlights participants’ great design expertise, the German Design Award has an excellent public image. This is also down to the reputation of its organizer, the German Design Council, which has been representing and supporting the German design industry with its expertise in all questions relating to design for 60 years now.

The German Design Council’s international premier prize steps forward to present a structural improvement in its fourth year of existence. The 2015 announcement already revealed this innovative change, namely the two areas - Excellent Product Design and Excellent Communications Design - will now function as separate formats under the umbrella brand German Design Award.
