Support for young designers: Red Dot Young Professionals program und Red Dot: Junior Award

The Red Dot Award: Product Design addresses professional designers and companies that go into series with their submitted products. In recognising that young graduates who just have entered the design profession only have a little budget available, the Red Dot Young Professionals program has been launched. It foresees that each year 50 product designers who graduated within the last two years can apply for a free participation of their products to the jury session. In case of being awarded there are also no additional costs: The complete Winner Package is taken over by the Red Dot GmbH & Co. KG. The performances of youngsters are being well received: On regular bases their projects are honoured with the Red Dot and even the Red Dot: Best of the Best award.

The Red Dot Award: Communication Design offers special conditions for junior designers with the program "Red Dot: Junior Award". The best of them can look forward to a special reward: Among the winners of the Red Dot: Best of the Best every year a young talent is honoured with the Red Dot: Junior Prize. This comes along with effective public presentations and a prize money of 10,000 Euro.
