Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017
On 24 October 2016, the registration period of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 will begin. With the help of a jury, the international competition appraises the top products of the year. Manufacturers and designers from all over the world submit originals of their latest products in the hope of being awarded the sought-after "Red Dot" distinction. Participants have until 8 February 2017 at the latest to submit their products.
Since 1955, the competition has been awarding prizes to excellent product design every year. From fashion and accessories to consumer electronics and vehicles, medical technology or furniture—manufacturers and designers can submit their industrial products in numerous categories.
Global brands and established design luminaries as well as up-and-coming professionals and medium-sized businesses alike are encouraged to take part in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017. Neither the selling price nor the prominence of the brand count, but exclusively the design quality of the objects. The award-winning products will be displayed amongst others in the Red Dot Design Museums, online and in the Red Dot Design Yearbook. By featuring the well-known winner label in their own marketing and communications, the laureates distinguish themselves from their competitors and highlight the design quality of their products.
