The finalists of the twelfth edition of Dutch Design Awards (DDA) are announced. A committee of independent experts drafted the shortlist of 25 finalists in 6 categories. 


This year, DDA awards prizes in the categories Fashion, Product, Habitat Communication, Service & Systems and Design Research. The committee of DDA drafted this shortlist after assessing a total of over 250 entries.  


Amongst the finalists the committee signals a growing awareness that there is more to design than is generally believed. Actively sharing thoughts about content plays a striking role in this trend. Dutch designers focus on the development of new perspectives and are often the connecting factor between the parties involved. They are more capable than anyone else to change conventional notions of beauty and taste.  


The complete overview of all finalists including the statements of the selection committees can be found here.  


An international expert jury designates the winner in each of the six categories and presents the awards during Dutch Design Week. The work of all the finalists will be on view during a nine-day exhibition.
