The Jury

Two mentors accompany and support the award. An international jury of experienced experts will assess the submissions with their know-how and thus determine the winners.

Transparent but not limiting

The Criteria

The winners will be evaluated and determined based on general and subject-specific criteria.

Due to the uniqueness of the submissions the criteria serve as an orientation of the documentation.

Overall rating

The originality, reproducibility and credibility are assessed.

Evaluated are the complexity of the analysis, the quality of the preparation and the way of implementation.

Consider the potential for change in environment, behaviour and production conditions.

Subject-specific reviews

This is about the design as an overall approach with the following criteria: aesthetics, user-friendly functionality, economic and ecological constructions, possibly the interaction of product and packaging. The quality of communication with the consumer about sustainability is also considered.

To assess the innovation, it is examined whether a problem / need (better) is solved, the scale of what is new and how relevant it is. When submitting concepts, there is an additional focus on the respective business model.

Assessment takes place along all phases of the life cycle (concept / pre-production, production, distribution, use, reuse). Information on the material used is considered separately, as well as information on the production conditions.
