Since 2012, the German Design Council - the centre of excellence for design - elects the winner of the German design award. Special designs in the fields of product and communication design, which convince with outstanding quality are awarded.
The premium prize is chosen by a jury consisting of experts from the industry, economy and design. Among the members of the jury of this year's awards ceremony were, in addition to the Director of the new design collection Munich/Nuremberg Dr. Angelika Nollert and the editor in Chief of A & W Magazine Barbara Friedrich, also famous designers such as Stefan Diez and Sebastian Herkner .
