Outstanding student achievements

The VDID Newcomers’ Award honours outstanding student achievements and offers aspiring industrial designers a platform and support for a successful start to their careers. The jury was looking for the best student projects and final degree assignments completed at German universities between 2017 and 2019. The entrants were free to choose their own theme, with work from all areas of product and industrial design accepted. From 198 submissions by young designers from 30 universities, the jury selected four equally ranked recipients of the main prize and awarded the accolade honourable mention to four further projects.
