The INDEX: Award 2019 finalists will be announced in June and the winners unveiled at an official ceremony in Copenhagen on September 6th, 2019. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter to be notified when tickets are available.
INDEX: Award is the biggest design award in the world, worth €500,000, and is commonly referred to as the ‘Nobel Prize of design’. The importance lies in the unique, over-arching theme of Design to Improve Life: a concept enabling design to be used as a tool to address the world’s biggest challenges.
INDEX: Award is awarded biennially in Denmark and, since its inauguration in 2005, has received almost 8,000 nominations from more than 100 countries.
INDEX: Award is split into five categories: Body, Home, Work, Play & Learning and Community, and one earmarked prize sum of €100,000 is presented to the winner in each category.
All winners and finalists are selected by the international INDEX: Award Jury according to the three criteria of Form, Impact and Context, representing not only the appearance of the design but also its ability to improve life for its user.
The nomination platform for INDEX: Award 2019 is now closed. In the meantime, you're free to send all tips to firstname.lastname@example.org until we reopen again for 2021. Thank you.
