Registering the product
How can I register?
How many products can I register?
You can register as many products as you want. All designers and manufacturers, whose products are available on the market, are invited to participate. Products must have been launched on the market after 1 January 2015 and by 1 July 2017 and must be available for purchase.
Is it possible to register product series?
In exceptional cases, product series (for example crockery, cutlery, etc.) can be grouped into one product registration. For further information feel free to contact us at pd(at)red-dot.de.
Can I use prototypes to take part?
Prototypes are permitted provided that the product will be brought to market by 1 July 2017. If the market launch will not take place until a later date, we recommend that you register your prototypes for the Red Dot Award: Design Concept.
How does the registration process work?
At the password protected “My Red Dot” portal, you can register for the current competition and complete your registration documents. Here you can also find an overview of your registrations as well as all documents needed. You can cancel your registration at any time and continue it at a later stage.
What information is needed for registration?
You just need basic information on your product (manufacturer, designer, a product description). The upload of texts and images is mandatory for the product’s presentation and, in case of being awarded, for the entry in the yearbook.
