The benefits for award winners

Moderate costs – hassle-free participation – independent jury – broad-based publicity!

Focus Open is one of the few non-commercial design awards with an international orientation in Germany. The costs for taking part are moderate – even newcomers and the smallest of companies can afford to enter their innovative products and compete at international level. Participation requires minimal effort, all the jurors are independent and agree not to submit any of their own works. Another special feature of the Focus Open competition is that the entries are not pre-selected on the basis of photographs prior to the judging. Wherever possible, every entry is presented to the jury for assessment in the form of the actual product.

The benefits for award-winners are considerable – besides feedback from the independent experts of the jury, they can also look forward to a publicity boost via the Design Center Baden-Württemberg’s numerous communication platforms, which include the international yearbook, exhibition, award ceremony and placement in social media and networks! This has a particularly positive impact on brand communications: the Focus Meta, Focus Gold, Focus Silver and Focus Special Mention labels are a mark of quality and a valuable branding tool.
