Kind + Jugend - Kids Design Award

In difficult times, good ideas are in demand. We noticed this in 2020 with the record number of ideas submitted and the international participation of young designers. For example, 166 product creations were submitted by young designers from 40 countries.

For this reason, the KIDS DESIGN AWARD will be presented for the eighth time this year on the occasion of Kind + Jugend 2021 which, as last year, will be held purely on a virtual basis due to the pandemic. Young designers from all over the world have the chance to be nominated and awarded with creative and trend-setting product ideas.

What topics appeal to young people and what unique products will emerge from them?

Be inspired by the ideas of tomorrow's young creatives! Take away important trends for future products that could be a special highlight in your assortment.
