iF DESIGN AWARD 2022
THE GLOBAL SIGN FOR OUTSTANDING
The iF DESIGN AWARD is one of the world’s most prestigious design awards. Organized in Germany since 1953, the iF seal signifies good design, for consumers and the design community.
An independent jury of international design experts meets to determine award-winning designs, based on a set of objective screening standards.

THE TWO-STEP JURY PROCESS
Step 1: iF Online Preselection
Based on the iF Scorecard, jurors evaluate each entry.
We rank all entries based on the scorecards.
The top 50% automatically qualify for the iF Final Jury.
Step 2: iF Final Jury
The iF Final Jury meets in March 2022 to examine the qualifying entries.
