Which criteria will be assessed?

The work submitted will be assessed based on the following criteria, whereby the jury reserves the right to determine their weighting: overall design, autonomy of the design, originality, conceptual and visionary quality, functionality, quality of use, design and presentation quality.

Who will go to Milan?

The jury will determine who will go to Milan in two phases. An initial shortlist will be created from all the entries and posted on the website from the middle of February. In the second phase, twenty products from the shortlist will be honoured as “Winners” and one as the “Best of Best”, and their designers will be invited to the exhibition in Milan.
