About the Red Dot Award
For more than 60 years, the Red Dot Award has offered designers and companies a platform for evaluating good design. The experience and expertise of the jury while the evaluation jury is incomparable. According to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” they have each of the approximately 6,500 submitted products individually tested and jointly decided on the awarding of the awards. The evaluation process is based on various judging criteria which are constantly adapted to new technical, social, economic and ecological requirements. They provide an orientation framework, which is complemented by each individual juror according to his or her expertise and socio-cultural background.
The judging criteria include amongst others:
• Degree of innovation
• Formal quality
• Symbolic and emotional content
• Product periphery
• Self-explanatory quality
• Ecological compatibility
The Red Dot Jury comprises some 40 international experts. They test, discuss and evaluate each entry individually, live and on site. The submissions are not compared with each other but are assessed individually. While the set-up of the jury changes annually, one element remains the same: All members commit to the “Code of Honour”, which states that jurors cannot participate in the adjudication of products they were involved in.
