Selection criteria

Submissions will be evaluated by the DDW selection committee. The DDW ambassadors fulfil an advisory role. Within four weeks, you will receive a response on your application. Please note: for the Klokgebouw, Veem, Ketelhuisplein and other guest locations that are offered, other DDW criteria apply.
Selection criteria

With their ability to create and solve problems, designers have a positive impact on the complex challenges of tomorrow. The selection committee examines all the application based on this belief and the following criteria:

  • The project is design related.
  • The project is topical/recent (thought of, created or made in the period 2018-2019) and has not been seen at DDW before.
  • The project is innovative and/or contributes to existing ideas.
  • The project is well-considered and thought out and ready for presentation.
  • The project is original, distinctive or experimental in both idea and execution.

The selection committee encourages submissions that originate from a cooperation between designers, commerce, experts, industry and /or knowledge institutes.
