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.

10 December 2014 was the Young Professionals Application Day: Designers who have obtained their academic qualifications within the past five years, had the chance to apply for the raffle for one out of 60 free registrations to the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015.

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 condition for taking part was that the products entered are made in series production and are not available on the market prior to 1 January 2013 or will be available on the market prior to 1 July 2015. Participation with concepts or drafts is generally not possible.

Required documents:

  • Personal data of the participant
  • Description of the product (500 – 1,200 characters)
  • Information on the manufacturer and designer
  • 1-5 pictures of the product in standard formats (jpg, gif, etc.)
  • Copy of the academic degree (graduation within the last 5 years)
