The 2016 Red Dot Award: Product Design is now open for submissions. An international jury of independent design experts assesses each entry and awards only products of high design quality with the sought-after Red Dot. "For more than 60 years now, our design award is a synonym for outstanding design quality and offers companies a decisive advantage on the market," commented Professor Dr. Peter Zec, CEO of the Red Dot Award. "Commercial success is based on a sustainable investment in innovative and well-designed products - the emblem for this is the Red Dot."

The Red Dot jury
At the heart of the Red Dot Award: Product Design is its jury. With their specialist knowledge, some 40 recognised experts from around the world guarantee the high quality standards and thus the value of the Red Dot seal. While the set-up of the jury changes annually, one element remains the same: all members commit to the “Code of Honour”, which states that jurors cannot participate in the adjudication of products they were involved in in any way. In addition, no juror can be employed by an industrial manufacturing company. This prevents conflicts of interest and ensures the highest possible degree of fairness and neutrality.
In an evaluation process lasting several days the international experts test, discuss and assess every single entry without a preselection. They adjudicate the actual products, which makes it absolutely necessary for entrants to submit functioning samples.
