Win over the jurors in the competition for product design!

The Red Dot Award: Product Design uncovers the best products of each year. Manufacturers and designers from all over the globe can choose from roughly 50 categories in which to enter their designs in the competition. In 2020, participants with smart or innovative entries can be in with a chance of winning two awards. To do this, they complete a second registration – either in the “Smart Products” or in the “Innovative Products” metacategory – after entering the object in one of the traditional product groups.

The application process in the My Red Dot portal involves just a few small steps: select the right category, add information on the entry, the manufacturer and the designer, and deliver a functioning product to us.

Take advantage of the benefits of winning an award:

  • Use of the internationally recognised Red Dot seal of quality
  • Inclusion of your award-winning product in the yearbook
  • Presentation of your product online on the Red Dot website and in the Red Dot Network
  • Exhibitions around the world that include your product
