World Design Impact PrizeWhat would happen if design projects and initiatives with the potential to change the world were given the opportunity to tell their story?

The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) is proud to unveil the World Design Impact Prize, an innovative and interactive design prize dedicated to recognizing, empowering and stimulating socially responsible design projects and initiatives around the world.

Starting 22 February 2011 Icsid will begin accepting nominations from member organisations for exceptional industrial design led projects and initiatives that exemplify progress, impact and social responsibility in design. “We at Icsid truly believe that the World Design Impact Prize has the potential to be a great vehicle for social, cultural, economic and environmental progress throughout the world,” stated Icsid President Dr. Mark Breitenberg. “This new prize concept will create an international platform to encourage and promote projects that are solving actual social and humanitarian problems using the processes of the expanding field of industrial design.”

A unique characteristic of the World Design Impact Prize is the unprecedented international selection process created to decide the winner. This will consist of over 160 Icsid Member organisations voting to determine the Prize winner through a collective internal selection, developed to involve local and regional communities. With each Icsid Member organisation casting their vote online, the selection process will bring together a tremendously accomplished group of leaders, pioneers and educators from the international industrial design community to determine the inaugural World Design Impact Prize winner. The official voting will be preceded by a public review process in which all nominated design projects and initiatives will be visible online for the public to view, critique, rate and share throughout their networks.

The World Design Impact Prize is a biennial designation created to recognise empower and stimulate socially responsible design projects and initiatives around the world. Presented by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid), the World Design Impact Prize will honour exceptional industrial design driven projects that are making a positive impact on our social, economic, cultural and/or environmental quality of life.

By drawing from the expertise of Icsid’s network, the World Design Impact Prize creates an exciting opportunity for members and the general public to play an active role in recognising and honouring projects, and project partners, that create a better world through design. Furthermore, the establishment of a prize specifically for industrial design driven projects will produce tangible examples, best practices and socially responsible industrial designs that will help shape the future of the profession. The World Design Impact Prize 2011 is the inaugural year that honours exceptional industrial design driven projects and initiatives that are making a positive impact on our social, economic, cultural and/or environmental quality of life.

IDA 2011The World Design Impact Prize will culminate in the announcement of the Prize winner at the XXVII Icsid General Assembly on 27-28 October 2011 in Taiwan (Chinese Taipei), immediately following the inaugural 2011 IDA Congress held on 24-26 October.

The IDA Congress is the primary event for dialogue between designers and non-designer stakeholders in a summit format. After an international Call for Proposals, the Taiwan Design Centre was selected as the host member society to organise the inaugural 2011 IDA Congress.

Design at the Edges has the following meanings: The edge between the design practices and other fields having a stake in design, including: science, technology, government, business and non-governmental humanitarian organisations; The edge between design disciplines, especially industrial, communication and interior design/architecture – what do they share in common and what sets them apart; ‘Cutting edge’ work and ideas in design and in other fields: radically new, controversial, experimental, pushing the boundaries of the discipline.
