What is the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE about?

The iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE aims to publish and support projects that contribute to our society. We do not charge any fees. The best projects will be honored with prize money of EUR 100,000 in total.

Publish your project in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE (for free) and you will automatically compete for the prize in 2020! In addition, your project will reach the global design community.

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.

When published, 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. Your project will stay online in the iF WORLD DESIGN GUIDE – without limitation in time and without any costs. It will be published in the collection „iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE“.


Who can apply?

Companies, design studios, NGOs, foundations, public and other organizations are welcome to submit. Your project should already be established and you can apply with the same project a maximum of two times. Student concepts will not be accepted.
