Nominations open for DesignEuropa Awards 2018

The second edition of the DesignEuropa Awards is now open for nominations and applications.

Organised by EUIPO, the DesignEuropa Awards honour outstanding design, designers and businesses that have brought their designs to the marketplace with the protection of the registered Community design (RCD). The Awards take place every two years.

The nomination and application period for the DesignEuropa Awards runs from 15 November 2017 until 15 May 2018.

The DesignEuropa Awards categories are:

  • The Industry Award: for RCDs owned by companies which have more than 50 employees and over €10 million in turnover/balance sheet total.
  • The Small and Emerging Companies Award: this category is for RCDs owned by companies which comply with one of the following conditions: (1) Fewer than 50 employees and less than €10 million turnover/€10 million balance sheet total; (2) Companies established after 1 January 2014, regardless of their size.
  • The Lifetime Achievement Award: for individual designers with a significant body of aesthetic work, created over the course of a career, which has also had a demonstrable impact on the marketplace. Nominees in this category must currently use or have used the RCD system during their professional careers.

Full details on how to apply or nominate can be found on the DesignEuropa Awards website.

The DesignEuropa Awards ceremony will be held in November 2018 in Warsaw, in cooperation with the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland (UPRP).

Please bring the Awards to the attention of any RCD users who might be interested. And good luck to everyone who applies!
