    Who can participate in the Red Dot: Junior Award?

    The Red Dot: Junior Award is a separate competition that is nevertheless organised in the framework of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design. It is open to students from universities, other institutions of higher learning and vocational schools, as well as to young designers who have graduated within the last two years. Applicants must show proof of enrolment in an institution of higher learning or vocational school or a copy of their diploma. Unlike the Red Dot Award: Communication Design, the date of origin of the submitted work is irrelevant for this competition.

    Is there just one winner out of the Red Dot: Junior Award?

    Everyone participating in the Red Dot: Junior Award has the same chance as every other participant for his work to be awarded with the Red Dot or the Red Dot: Best of the Best. The participant with the most convincing project of the competition’s year furthermore receives the “Red Dot: Junior Prize”, 10,000 EUR to launch their career as well as special mention in Red Dot exhibitions and press releases.

    How can I enter my work in the Red Dot: Junior Award?

    Our „How to Enter“ video explains the whole registration process for the Red Dot Award: Communication Design step by step.

    Here you can find an overview of all our categories and our Guides to Success in nine different languages. In our Guides to Success the whole registration process for each category is explained in detail in order to be able to register your work successfully.

    How is my work going to be judged?

    The junior works will be judged within the framework of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design like all other projects. However, the judges will be informed when it comes to junior works. After all decisions have been made and all awards have been given, the winner of Red Dot: Junior Prize will be chosen out of all Red Dot: Best of the Best winners. Each juror must give his or her vote.

    How can I ask my university for support?

    Unfortunately, it‘s not always that easy for students to get support from universities. In case your university wants to support your submission, we are happy to answer any questions or provide more information.

    In case you have any further questions, contact us via email (cd@red-dot.de) or by phone: +49 201 30104 49

  • Red Dot: Junior Prize

  • popup-junior

    The Red Dot: Junior Prize is given to the best work of a trainee, student or young designer of a competition’s year. The objective is to facilitate their access to the professional world, allowing them to convince potential clients of their own skills as early as possible.

    The software company Adobe is sponsor of the „Red Dot: Junior Prize 2015“. The worldwide leading manufacturer for digital solutions will sponsor the prize money of 10,000 Euro or the distinction. Red Dot and Adobe share the view that training creative approaches as early as possible to the challenges of today’s working world is a decisive factor for economic and professional success. The sponsorship partnership aims to enhance this involvement so that new ideas can result in the solutions of the future.

    “In all Red Dot competitions, we promote the real professionals amongst the young talents. Consequently, the Red Dot: Junior Prize goes only to those up-andcoming designers who have already demonstrated their outstanding abilities with a Red Dot: Best of the Best. It is in the period between finishing academic education and getting the first full-time job that sponsorship is most urgently needed and can be put to its best use. I am thrilled about the involvement of Adobe, a company that has also been associated with good design on an international level for decades. The Red Dot Design Award has thus acquired an ideal sponsor and partner that has a strong reputation in the industry while at the same time being independent from the competition” (Professor Dr Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot)

  • Why to take part?

  • popup-why-to-take-part

    The decision to take part in the competition is far more difficult for young designers than for „professionals“. Sometimes, the award costs or uncertainty about the presentation of their works discourage young talents to take part in the competition. Therefore, the Red Dot: Junior Award offers a discount on all junior submissions and winner packages. Mustafa Karakaş, former winner of the Red Dot: Junior Prize, knows why it‘s totally worth it to participate:

    „Until now, reactions have only been positive. At the Red Dot Gala many designers congratulated me. Also many designers from other countries like Singapore or the UK were impressed by my work. Even today, I get many phone calls and messages from galleries, companies and associations who want to congratulate me and offer me collaborations.“

    „Young professionals and up-and-coming talents should definitely hand in their works in competitions. So you have the chance to check if you can convince others with your works and if you can keep up with renowned designers and agencies, already at an early stage. It is a perfect door opener and makes the career start a lot easier. It pushes your self-esteem. Students should not have any scruples to participate and hand in their projects. And in your portfolio it is that “extra something “.

    Special exhibition
    06 February 2015
    to 03. Mai 2015

    Red Dot Design Museum Essen
    Zollverein Areal A (Schacht XII)

    www.red-dot-design-museum.org

    Smart Apps, impressing poster campaigns or attention-attracting advertising films: all communication works, which are on show in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, Germany from 6 February – 3 May 2015, have one thing in common: their award-winning design. The special exhibition “Design on Stage – Winners Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2014” presents the latest Red Dot awarded creative achievements from around the globe. Among the more than 600 innovative works, which will turn the former boiler house of Zollverein coal mine into a hot spot, are annual reports, packaging designs and typographies as well as games, interfaces and sound designs. The works grant insights in the latest and most exciting communication strategies and illustrate impressingly how to advertise in a creative way today.

    The presentation includes the awarded designs by Scholz & Friends. In 2014, the creative company, which is also known as the “Orchestra of Ideas”, received the honorary title “Red Dot: Agency of the Year” – for surprising campaigns which function in all media types, that dare to come up with surprising punch lines, and play with the stereotypes of well-known brands. “Long live the corner pub”: The orchestra of ideas created an advertising campaign for the beer brand Schultheiss from Berlin, which celebrates the endangered pub around the corner as a local cultural heritage – true to the motto “Our coffee to go is called beer to stay”. The Greenpeace campaign “World of Waves” is also on show. It brings the consequences of climate change home to the beholder with an impressing illustration and calls him or her upon to change thinking.

    Current communication projects are also demonstrated by using the example of packaging design: they prove that packaging is much more than protection or means of transportation. It can be designed playfully, present its content in a never seen way or tell stories. Visitors can get enthused by the “Smart Heads” which Kolle Rebbe designed for Hansgrohe: a packaging which gives the manufacturer’s shower heads a body, for example the one of Albert Einstein.

    Numerous works of up-and-coming designers mix up with the award-winning achievements of renowned creative agencies and companies. So does the “Next Generation Scientific Poster” by Konrad Rappaport which was awarded with the Red Dot: Junior Prize endowed with 10,000 Euros. “Its potential is as huge as the future of presenting scientific education”, adjudged the international expert jury the interactive scientific poster. It deals with the consequences, mechanisms and reasons of landslides in the ocean as a frequent catalyst of tsunamis and imparts complex scientific content in an extremely vivid way.

  • In 2015, its anniversary year, the Design Zentrum NRW establishes a new distinction: the Red Dot: Brand of the Year. In every competition’s year of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design, there is one brand that creates innovative design solutions in a particularly high degree and convinces the Red Dot jury with various entries. Honoured is design quality and decisiveness in brand management – regardless whether placed on the expertise of external agencies or on the company’s own award-winning communications.
