IDEA 2016 Preview

 

The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) is excited to unveil the 2016 winners of one of the world’s most prestigious and rigorous design competitions—the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA). More than 1,700 projects from 30-plus countries entered IDEA 2016 as the competition marks its 36th year. All winning entries are displayed in one of two groups below. Top Winners have either earned a Gold or Silver IDEA while Bronze winners are identified in the second group. Gold and Silver winners will be revealed August 17 in a grand Ceremony and Gala at Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. 

Voting for the IDEA 2016 People’s Choice Award is open. A selection of IDEA 2016 winners will be showcased in an exhibit that opens July 11 at the museum. Follow the excitement leading to IDEA 2016 Ceremony and Gala on #IDSAIDEA—and to the International Conference from August 17 to 20 on #IDSADetroit16—on Twitter @IDSA; Industrial Designers Society of America on Facebook and LinkedIn; and @IDSAdesign on Instagram.
