What is the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE about?
Our initiative – the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE – aims to support projects that contribute to our society.
The best projects will be honored with a total prize money of EUR 100,000 per year.
You are welcome to submit all projects that contribute to solving the most urgent challenges of our
time and help to improve conditions – your CSR projects or your active support for a specific aspect of society.
The project should already be implemented.
If you can answer one or more questions with “Yes”, you should enter your project
Does it approach or solve a relevant problem?
Does it reflect moral-ethical standards?
Does it strengthen group relations?
Does it create a positive experience?
Does it balance effort and use value?
The size of the project does not really matter but the idea, the relevance of the problem,
the target groups and the sustainable impact will be of interest to our online visitors.
Every published project and you as a company or organization behind will also benefit from the fact
being introduced to a global design community, media and the design interested public.
Projects selected by the jury will stay online on the iF Design Website without limitation in time and without any costs.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Companies, design studios, NGOs, foundations, public and other organizations, social enterprises
and entrepreneurs are welcome to submit.
