What is Best in Design?

Best in Design is an international contest for young designers. There are not only financial rewards from 200 € up to 1 500 € in the game, but it’s also a great opportunity to get a feedback, to compare yourself with young designers from all around the world, to show people what you can do and maybe to start your career. The only thing you need to enter the contest is your talent and courage.

Who may compete?

Both individuals and author teams under the age of 30 can apply for the competition. Authors can reveal all their aces up their sleeves (which must not be from before 1 January 2021) – the number of projects registered is not limited, and your wallet won’t cry because you can apply for free.

Why shouldn’t you be afraid to take the risk and sign up?

Because risk is a profit and in Best in Design you cannot lose anything, just gain. The reward, experience, and opportunities. You only have to show us that design is what you love.

4 Categories

You can win an award in one of four competition categories (Product & Industrial Design, Fashion Design, Communication Design and Service Design) and compete for the Best in Design grand prize. Your work can also be awarded in the Media Award category.
