The Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany is the country‘s highest distinction in the field
of design. It is known as the »Prize of Prizes«. The reason: no other design award sets such strict
criteria on entries. Thus, a company can only enter the competition for the Design Award if its product
has already been awarded a national or international design prize. Another precondition for entry is
that companies must have been nominated by the Ministries and Senators of the Federal States or
by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
