Can design have a positive impact on the world?

The answer is: Yes, it can. At iF Design, we believe that design can help change the world for the better. To ensure the important role of design in the world, it is crucial to encourage the next generation of designers and promote design projects with a social focus.

That is why iF Design also holds the iF DESIGN STUDENT AWARD for design students and the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE for social projects - because our common future is the responsibility of all of us.

iF DESIGN STUDENT AWARD

One of the most important design prizes for students from all over the world - with about 10,000 submissions each year!

Once a year, the iF DESIGN STUDENT AWARD is calling for your stunning design concepts aiming at the categories of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our international jury of design experts honors the most outstanding designs with a total of EUR 50,000 in prize money.

iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE

When most people hear the word design, they don't necessarily associate it with positive social impact.

Yet all the projects that have applied to the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE so far prove the exact opposite: there are so many people who are using design to make the world a more social and sustainable place, step by step.

If you work towards achieving one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, don't hesitate to register your project - applying is free of charge!
