The competition offers 31 categories where manufacturers and designers can submit their industrially manufactured innovations – among them “Consumer electronics and cameras”, “Outdoors, trekking and camping” and “Babies and children”, as well as “Office furnishings and office chairs”. The award-winning products and their makers are traditionally celebrated at the festive award ceremony known as the Red Dot Gala.
About the Red Dot Award
In order to appraise the wide scope of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Design Award is broken down into the three distinct disciplines: Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award is organised by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen. With more than 17,000 entries from 70 countries in 2015 alone, it is one of the largest design competitions in the world. In 2015, the award is celebrating its 60th anniversary: It was in 1955 that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. The name and brand of the award were developed in the 1990s by Red Dot CEO, Professor Dr. Peter Zec. Since then, the sought-after Red Dot is the revered international seal of
outstanding design quality.
