The iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE aims to publish and support projects that contribute to our society. The idea behind it is to support civil society and its initiatives and projects. The best projects will be honored with a total prize money of EUR 100,000 per year.
You are welcome to submit all projects that contribute to solving the most urgent challenges of our time and help to improve conditions – your CSR projects or your active support for a specific aspect of society. When published, the project must already be implemented.
The project should already be implemented.
Companies, design studios, NGOs, foundations, public and other organizations, social enterprises and entrepreneurs are welcome to submit. Student concepts cannot be accepted.
If your project is selected for the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE, you can benefit from many advantages which help to boost your project:
Your project will be supported with a share of EUR 100,000 in prize money.
Your project will be introduced to a global design community, media and the design-interested public.
Projects selected by the jury will receive their individual jury report for each supported project.
You can update your project with latest videos, photos or news.
You simply have to submit your project in my iF. After a brief content check by us, you will receive a short confirmation. If everything is okay, your project will automatically compete for the prize.
The application is free of charge.
All projects submitted until 9 May 2023 (the first round of this year) will be considered for the first half of the prize money of EUR 50,000 in total.
If you can answer one or more of the following questions with “Yes”, you can enter your project:
Does it approach or solve a relevant problem?
Does it reflect moral-ethical standards?
Does it strengthen group relations?
Does it create a positive experience?
Does it balance effort and use value?
The size of the project does not really matter but the idea, the relevance of the problem, the target groups and the sustainable impact will be of interest to our online visitors. Every published project and you as a company or organization behind will also benefit from the fact being introduced to a global design community, media and the design interested public. Projects selected by the jury will stay online on the without limitation in time and without any costs.
Please see more details at the end of this page.
The prize money in total of EUR 100,000 will be donated by iF Design. It can be awarded to one or split between several projects. The international jury panel will select the projects, decide the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE and distribute EUR 50,000 (for the second round).
