Winners and main partners presenting the INDEX: Award 2013

INDEX: Award

INDEX: Award is the biggest design award in the world (€500,000) – and probably the most important. The importance of INDEX: Award lies in the unique, over-arching theme of Design to Improve Life – a concept which has established INDEX: Award as a global, inspirational design beacon.

INDEX: Award is awarded biennially in Denmark, under the attendance of HRH The Crown Price of Denmark, who is patron of INDEX: Design to Improve Life®. Since 2005, INDEX: Award has received 3,600 nominations from more than 80 countries.

INDEX: Award is split into five categories: Body, Home, Work, Play and Community, representing the entire human life, inside to out. One prize worth €100,000 is presented to the winner in each of the categories.

From the pool of nominations, an international jury of designers, design scholars and thinkers, business people and curators will select a group of finalists, who will be displayed in the world touring INDEX: Award 2013 Exhibition.

All incoming nominations are evaluated according to three criteria Form, Impact and Context, and address large-scale challenges that the world faces today and/or will face in the future.
