The competition was intense: almost 11,000 products were submitted from 57 countries. All hoping to receive the prestigious seal of quality. The jury process consisted of two phases, an online pre-selection and a three-day lasting physical assessment in Berlin. This year the jurors used the newly developed digital jury tool both on and offline. As a result, all submitted products were extensively assessed based on the challenging criteria: Idea, Differentiation, Function, Form, and impact. All award-winning entries are featured on www.ifdesign.com and published in the iF Design App.
