Red Dot honours creative elite in Berlin

The world’s best designers of advertising and communication design in Germany’s melting pot: On 6 November 2015, the most convincing campaigns and most creative projects will once again be honoured in Berlin. The Red Dot: Best of the Best winners will receive the sought-after trophies in a celebratory atmosphere at the Red Dot Gala in the Konzerthaus Berlin located at the Gendarmenmarkt. The suspense will be maintained until the end - the announcement of who has won this year’s top individual award in the competition, the Red Dot: Grand Prix, will be made in the presence of 1,400 international guests. Likewise the proud winner of the Red Dot: Junior Prize with prize money of EUR 10,000, sponsored this year by software firm Adobe, will not be announced until the evening itself.

The award ceremony is particularly significant for the winners of the titles of honour in the Red Dot Award: Communication Design - the representatives of Leo Burnett, Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2015, will be honoured on the evening for their above-average design achievements. The entire management in the form of Managing Director Andrea Albrecht, Chief Creative Officer Andreas Pauli and Chief Financial Officer Norbert Knapp will accept the “Stylus” challenge cup on stage in person. The Red Dot: Brand of the Year, that receives the title for the most successful brand in the competition, can look forward to the trophy designed specially for this new award.

This year’s musical entertainment will be provided by “La Finesse” with their mix of classical and modern music. For the past five years, the four string virtuosos have been impressing German and international audience members alike with their unmistakeable sound. In a bold and nuanced way, they place the musical inheritance of great composers in a new context, also spanning title songs from cinema and TV.

Afterwards the celebrations continue in Berlin’s E-Werk, where the winners, jury members and friends of design will duly celebrate the best in the competition until the early hours. Cult DJ Chrissi D! from the Ruhr region will provide the soundtrack to the electric after-show party. At the same time, the “Design on Stage” exhibition will take place, which presents all of the winning works in the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2015 in the midst of the legendary club.

In addition, in an exhibition entitled “Best Communication Design - Red Dot Winners Selection 2015”, the Museum für Kommunikation Berlin will showcase from 8 November all of the works that have won a Red Dot: Best of the Best or Red Dot: Grand Prix in this year’s competition as well as all award-winning projects of the Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2015.
