2021 International Design Excellence Awards

2021 marks the 41st anniversary of the International Design Excellence Awards ( IDEA ), one of the longest running and most prestigious design awards programs in existence. Originally founded to recognize exceptional achievement in industrial design, the program has since grown to highlight design in many connected disciplines including design strategy, branding, digital interaction and so much more. Each year, thousands of entries are submitted by design teams across the globe, making IDEA one of the largest and most widely anticipated annual awards programs in the world.

IDEA set the benchmark for what a design award represents and has endured to become a career-defining catalyst for those talented enough to win.

IDEA is very fortunate for its ongoing partnership with The Henry Ford. Since 2010, winning IDEA products are entered into the permanent collection of the museum, where they remain ever-present symbols of ingenuity and mastery of craft. The Henry Ford name is synonymous with innovation and the pursuit of excellence. The museum welcomes over 1.7 million visitors per year and is a national historic landmark, with an unparalleled collection of artifacts spanning over 300 years of human ingenuity.

如何定義卓越設計

IDEA認可鼓勵、激勵和推動行業發展的產品和服務。我們提倡創新和卓越。我們鼓勵深入和前瞻性的思考過程。最終,我們尊重為用戶、客戶和社會帶來真正利益的偉大設計。

每年,評審團都會根據5個標準對創意作品進行評審。在40年歷史中,同樣的標準一直沒有改變。我們相信這種一致性進一步將IDEA計畫與其他獎項計畫區分開來。

自成立以來,IDEA的目標始終是識別和表彰卓越設計的巔峰。這種想法是不受變化的時尚或短暫的風格。相反,它的獲獎者揭示了設計在商業、社會和其他領域的巨大意義,從而證明了當設計發揮其最大潛力時,偉大的成果是可能的。

  • 設計創新-產品或服務有多新?它解決了什麼關鍵問題?這個解決方案有多聰明?它是否提升了產品類別?
  • 對用戶的好處-如何通過這種設計改善用戶的生活?他們能完成以前不可能的事情嗎?
  • 對客戶/品牌的好處-這種設計對業務有什麼影響?如何利用設計證明是一個關鍵的市場差異?
  • 造福社會-解決方案是否考慮社會和文化因素?是否採用可持續的方法/材料設計/製造?
  • 適當的美學-設計的形式是否與其用途/功能充分相關?使用的顏色/材料/飾面是否適合其用途?


IDEA Rules & Regulations

IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO ENTER IDEA 2021, THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA MUST BE MET:

PARTICIPANT QUALIFICATIONS

  • IDEA 2021 is open to designs and designers worldwide.
  • Designs may be entered in multiple categories, but each entry must be submitted ( and paid for ) separately. Please note: awards will not be given to the same design in more than one product category ( i.e., an entry will not win in both Medical & Health and Home ).
  • If an entry did not win a Gold, Silver or Bronze IDEA in 2020, but still meets all the other criteria ( including two-year distribution window ), it may be resubmitted by the designer for consideration in 2021.
  • Only student entries may be submitted in the student category. If you are a student and wish to be judged as a professional, you may do so; however, you will be charged the professional entry fee.
  • Members of IDSA receive exclusive discounted pricing when entering IDEA. Join IDSA today.

PRODUCT / PROJECT DISTRIBUTION QUALIFICATIONS

  • IDEA aims to recognize products and services that are real and tangible. This means the product must be available for purchase, in its final form to its intended end users, through normal sales channels. Exceptions to this rule are in the case of the Social Impact Design category, where products often are given as part of an aid effort / charity program or in the case of Student projects which are singular creations not meant for distribution.
  • New for 2021 – Professional conceptual design entries must be submitted in the new Concept & Speculative Design Category. ‘Concept’ is defined here as a product, service, or experience that is NOT available for purchase to the public or that has NOT been developed to the point of tangible production and distribution. Concept entries may also be speculative in nature and could include technologies or features that do not yet exist.
  • Project Distribution:
    • Professional entries must have been placed into distribution between March 1, 2019 and March 1, 2021.
    • Professional concept designs must have been finalized or completed between March 1, 2019 and March 1, 2021.
    • Student entries must have been submitted to the school between March 1, 2019 and March 1, 2021.
