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
The awards set the highest standards in terms of selecting their winners: in a unique
nomination process, companies whose products and communication design services
demonstrably exhibit design excellence are invited to enter. Moreover, companies have the
opportunity to submit projects directly and on their own initiative; these will then be reviewed
by the German Design Council to verify whether they meet the required participation criteria.
Categories for a broad spectrum of design
In order to appropriately reflect the diversity of our design culture, the German Design Awards
are split into the categories of »Excellent Product Design«, »Excellent Communications
Design« and »Excellent Architecture«. These encompass all areas of daily life. In each of the
award categories, the distinctions »Gold«, »Winner« and »Special Mention« are presented.
The »Gold« distinction of the German Design Awards is the highest distinction, awarded for
excellent, comprehensive and innovative design work. As leading trailblazers, »Gold« title
holders provide crucial stimulation for entire industries. The jury names one or more »Gold«
recipients in each category, depending on the quality of the submissions.
The »Winner« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to outstanding and
commendably realised design work in the context of a specific category. In each category, an
appropriate number of design submissions is awarded the distinction of »Winner«. These are
selected by a separate expert jury in each category of the German Design Awards.
The »Special Mention« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to consistent
design conception and implementation. In each category, the jury awards an appropriate
number of entries with this mark of excellence for innovative design based on their quality.
They are selected by a separate expert jury for each category of the German Design Awards.
