iF Managing Director Uwe Cremering is enthusiastic about the enormous diversity and creativity of the projects entered: "The iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE is an opportunity close to our hearts. Together with our young talent award, the iF DESIGN STUDENT AWARD, it is our contribution to the common good around the world. The focus is on people and their commitment. It's also important for us to show what role design can play in solving urgent social tasks."

With the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE, iF International Forum Design GmbH launched a prize in 2017 that promotes projects and initiatives that creatively solve our social problems and challenges. Each year, iF Design awards a total of EUR 100,000 in prize money, which goes directly to the initiatives. An international iF team decides which eligible activities to support.
