History

The iF Industrie Forum Design e.V.[1] has been around for more than 50 years. They launched in 1953 with a "Special Show for Well-Designed Industrial Goods" as part of the Hanover Fair industrial trade exhibition, originally to highlight German Design. They now strive to serve as a mediating arm between design and industry internationally. They believe that this capacity allows them to make contributions to design services and to increase public awareness on the importance of design. They combined all relevant areas in design, some with previous award programs they had started, in 2000-2002 to become the iF Design Award. Today the contest attracts entries from more than 35 countries, in 12 categories. To this day, iF International Forum Design publishes annual yearbooks showcasing the winners of their design awards.

Community

The iF Industrial Forum Design is joined by other design professional Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), Verband Deutscher Industrie Designer e.V.[2] (VDID), and International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) are just a few of the international community that enter the iF Product Design competition.
