A'Design Awards feature a new category for medical and scientific goods this year, and the competition is open to both concept-stage and finished products. Entries are judged on criteria including form, functional and emotional aspects, degree of innovation, aesthetic qualities, functionality and usefulness, ease of realization and realization efficiency, ergonomics, and human interaction. Winning designs receive marketing assistance, are showcased in a book of best designs from the competition, and will be included in a museum exhibit.
The deadline for submissions is February 29, 2012. Good luck!
