About the Red Dot Design Award

Identifying good design since 1950, the Red Dot Design Award received more than 17,000 applications in 2015. Making the competition one of the biggest and most prestigious design awards worldwide.

In 2005, the award recognised the need to identify and celebrate new design concept and innovation, the precursor of tomorrow’s great product. Believing a design concept must be evaluated based on its design merit without prejudice, the award created a unprecedented platform that accept entries from companies to design students. 

These entries are subjected to a “blind” adjudication where the information of the participant are hidden from the jury.  A testament to this belief, the result is a wide spectrum of winners for the Red Dot: Luminary, presented to the best concept of the year. From 2007 to 2015, the winners are Saab Automobile AB and GM Europe Design, Francesco Sommacal, Design Exchange, Agent, Philips Design, Huang Hsin Ya and Huang Pin Chen, Massey University, School of Design, College of Creative Arts, Superperdestrian and Hankook Tire.

Today, the Red Dot Award for design concept has grown to be the largest and most recognised professional design competition for design concept and prototypes worldwide. As the industry benchmark, this competition becomes the foundation of the Red Dot Design Ranking, published by the Red Dot Institute. The Red Dot Award: Design Concept is administered by Red Dot Singapore Pte Ltd.

Every year, Red Dot Design Ranking, highlighting the top 15 companies, design studios and design institutions of different regions is now the ultimate reference for design achievement and capability. In 2015, the Red Dot Award for design concept received 4,680 entries from 61 countries. These entries are submitted by 285 design institutions, 400 companies and design studios, 3,197 designers.

In addition to the sheer number of participation and the illustrious list of winners, the award’s prestige is also built upon the special privilege bestowed upon winners.  Today, Red Dot Design Award is the only international design award that has three large world class design museums to celebrate and showcase its winners.  Every year, the winning concepts of the Red Dot Award for design concepts is exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Singapore.  The museum, together with the yearbook, the yearbook apps, the online exhibition, the travelling exhibitions and the numerous media features brings attention of millions to the achievement of the winners, making the Red Dot Award for design concepts, the definitive award to win.
