Awarded Excellence

The exhibitors at Designers’ Saturday will be judged by the executive board and an international panel in a twostage selection process. At the event the jury will evaluate each presentation and will be presenting three D’S Awards per exhibitor category – Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The D’S Award is an expression of the organisers’ aspiration to accentuate the position of Designers’ Saturday as an exclusive and exceptional phenomenon, by contrast with the ongoing expansion of mass events. The exhibitors at Designers’ Saturday can and should exploit the potential offered by the event, the quality of the exhibition areas and the freedom of design allowed them to the fullest possible extent.



The best presentations will be chosen by the jury to receive the D’S Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.
