The premier prize of the German Design Council

The German Design Awards are the international premier prize of the German Design Council. Their goal is to discover, showcase and recognise unique design trends. As such, high-calibre submissions from the fields of product and communication design – all of which play a pioneering role within the international design landscape in their own way – are honoured every year. The German Design Awards, which were initiated in 2012, are amongst the world’s most renowned design awards and enjoy a prestigious reputation that extends well beyond specialist circles.
