Swiss Design Competition

All Swiss designers and designers working in Switzerland can take part in the Swiss Design Competition. The jury consists of the seven members of the Federal Design Commission and invited experts. In a first step, the jury looks at the dossiers submitted to the competition and makes a selection for the second round, held at the exhibition in Basel about two weeks before the opening. There, the exhibited projects are judged, and the 17 Swiss Design Prizes are awarded. The prize money is CHF 25’000 per award.

Swiss Design Awards Exhibition

The Swiss Design Awards exhibition takes place in parallel with Art Basel and Design Miami/Basel and attracts around 12’000 visitors every year. On display are 52 projects by the finalists of the Swiss Design Awards. Since 2018, works by the winners of the Swiss Grand Award for Design have also been presented. (Further information on the Swiss Grand Award for Design can be found on the website).

The exhibition is the most important annual meeting place for the Swiss design scene. In an international context, the Federal Office of Culture showcases all aspects of contemporary Swiss design. To stimulate discourse, the projects are not only awarded prizes and presented to a broad audience, but also placed in a wider context with a rich supporting program.
