European Product Design Award 2024

The European Product Design Award is back for 2024 to recognize the expertise of international product and industrial designers. This competition recognizes the efforts of talented designers and design teams who aim to improve daily life with a practical and beautiful creation, designed to solve a problem, make life easier or simply spread joy.

Eligibility

The eDPA competition is open to anyone aged 18+ residing anywhere in the world. Professional entries will be judged against other professionals and student entries against other students.

Judging Criteria

  • Innovation — does the product provide something new to the market or supplement/improve an existing product?
  • Aesthetics — form, shape, colour, texture, finishing, the material used, etc.
  • Functionality — ease of use, safety, maintenance, etc.
  • Ergonomics — the product’s interaction with the user
  • Durability — the quality and longevity of the design
  • Impact — the benefit delivered to the user and/or society by the product
  • Utility — does the product meet the intended purpose and needs of the user?
  • Ecological compatibility — potential environmental and/or ecological impact
  • The reality of production — how realistic is it, technically and economically, to develop and market this product large-scale?
  • Emotional quotient — in addition to fulfilling its practical purpose, does the product create a sense of enjoyment, satisfaction?

Submission Details

Entries can be submitted as conceptual designs, in progress, or as completed projects. The only restriction is that entries or completed projects must be no more than 5 years old.

The European Product Design Award is chosen based on a single project – not for a body of work.

Prizes

The winner of the 2024 European Product Design Award will receive the ePDA trophy at an exclusive evening celebrating the winners, as well as a copy of the ePDA Annual Book of Product Designs distributed internationally. In addition, the winning design will be promoted in a newsletter to 100,000 design professionals and potential clients worldwide, year-long coverage on our website, and critical acclaim by the panel of judges.

All winners will also receive a winner’s certificate and badge to use for promotional purposes. They will be promoted on the ePDA website in the Winners Gallery and in Newsletters sent to design industry professionals and potential clients. Winners will also be listed in the ePDA online Design Directory, making it easier for them to be reached by potential customers.
