The evaluation process for entries to IDA is based on various judging criteria which are constantly adapted to new creative, technical, social, economic and ecological requirements. These criteria are not comprehensive and not all criteria are applicable to each design. They simply provide an orientation framework and basis for judging, which is complemented by each individual juror’s expertise and professional background.
Each member of the Jury is passionately committed to providing a fair and unbiased evaluation of all entries.
The judging criteria include the following:
Innovation — does the design stand out, provide something new to the market or supplement/improve an existing product or service?
Aesthetics — artistic value of the form, shape, color, texture, finishing, engineering, material used, etc.
Functionality — ease of use, safety, maintenance, etc.
Ergonomics — the overall interaction with the user
Durability — the quality and longevity of the design
Impact — the benefit delivered to the user and/or society by the design
Utility — does the design meet the intended purpose and needs of the user?
Reality of production — how realistic is it, technically and economically, to bring this design to production and broad-scale use
Emotional quotient — in addition to fulfilling its practical purpose, will the design create a sense of enjoyment, satisfaction?
The International Design Awards use a Scoring System between 1-10 points. Jury members are assigned categories based on their specific background and design expertise. All projects are viewed and judged randomly and anonymously to ensure unbiased and fair judging.
