The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) invites designers to compete in the 40th International Designing Excellence Awards (IDEA) in 2020. Overall, the International Designing Excellence Awards is one of the oldest and most prestigious designing programs in the world. In addition to the starting aim of recognizing the exceptional achievement in industrial design, the program now also actively works to highlight design in many other related disciplines including design strategy, branding, digital interaction and so much more. Each year, thousands of innovative designers and design teams across the globe submit their entries in IDEA which makes it one of the largest and also the most widely anticipated annual awards programs in the world.
The Program divides the two categories among the Professionals and Students
Generally, the IDSA International Design Excellence Awards 2020 is open to all the innovative designs and designers from all around the globe. Basically, students are eligible to submit entries only in the student’s category. But however, they can pay an extra professional entry fee and participate if they wish to participate as a professional. In addition to that, the same design will not be eligible to win the award in more than one product category (for example, an entry will not win in both Medical & Health and Home). If an entry did not win a Gold, Silver or Bronze IDEA in 2019, but still meets all the other criteria (including a two-year distribution window) then it can be eligible for resubmission for the consideration 2020.
The winner of the International Design Excellence Awards will get significant, international publicity and exposure. In addition to our partners’ announcements of the winners, media publicize IDEA winners each year. Furthermore, it gives an opportunity to feature in the IDSA’s annual Yearbook of Design Excellence, the book features in-depth coverage of the Gold winners and a complete listing of all honorees.
