The works and projects submitted in the Red Dot Award: Communication Design are assessed by the Red Dot jury. Following the motto “In search of good design and creativity”, the international experts evaluate all of the entries live and in situ. The works are not compared directly against each other, and no preselection takes place. Each project is discussed and assessed individually and on its own merits. Only projects that win over the jury with their overall quality and creative achievement are awarded the Red Dot seal.
The experts are bound by a “Code of Honour” that prevents them from submitting their own work or projects they have been involved in. Thus, they do not take part in assessing work that they contributed to in any way. This ensures that members of the Red Dot jury do not judge their own work or the work of direct competitors.
