The 2015 Innovation By Design
The 2015 Innovation By Design Awards bestow honors on designers and businesses that have worked together to solve the problems of today and tomorrow. The competition, now in its fourth year, includes 14 categories, which are judged by a cross-section of established designers and design-minded executives (scroll down for a complete list). Entries are judged on their functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, depth of user insight, cultural impact, and business impact—the key ingredients for any innovation. Finalists are featured in the pages of the October issue of Fast Company magazine (circulation 725,000) and on Co.Design (4.2 million visits per month). Winners will be celebrated at Fast Company's 20th anniversary celebration in New York this November. See last year’s finalists and winners. For full competition details, see the rules and FAQs.
