Young Professionals Application Day

Being one of the biggest international design awards, Red Dot annually supports new talents in strengthening the trust of potential clients in their creative performance. Once a year, on Young Professionals Application Day, designers who have obtained their academic qualifications within the past five years, have the chance to take part in the draw for one of 50 free registrations to the Red Dot Award: Product Design.

Besides costless participation in the competition, the young professionals benefit from a free presentation of their products in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen and the Red Dot Design Yearbook, as well as from the use of the Red Dot winner label in case of being awarded.

The Young Professionals Application Day for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 was on 7 December 2016.
