The Red Dot Design Awards is once again accepting entries for its annual product design competition. The Red Dot Design Awards is an international product design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. Participants from previous years include designers, artists and product manufacturers.
The deadline for submissions starts on January 18, 2013, with a late registration on Febuary 6, 2013. Submissions will be categorized into 19 different product groups and will be evaluated by more than 30 experts from a panel. The members of the panel will test, discuss and examine each product live and in site at the Red Dot Design Awards’ headquarters in Essen, Germany.
The winning products are rewarded through several ways including the privilege of wearing the Red Dot Design badge on the product’s packaging or in high quality advertising campaigns which in turn guarantees a high level of recognition. The winning designs will also be presented in the Red Dot Design Museum on the premises of the historical Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen. Winning products will also be featured in an online exhibition and in some cases toured in special occasions around the world.
