Businessworld-NID Design Excellence Awards to be held in December

Businessworld and National Institute of Design (NID) have got together once again to bring the Design Excellence Awards 2005, which is going to be held on December 3 this year.

Instituted in 2003, the Businessworld-NID Design Excellence Awards has become a forum for recognising the best in Indian design, thereby bringing the design community closer to the Indian industry.

Said D N Mukerjea, Deputy Editor, Businessworld, “We believe as the economy grows and matures, industrial design will become a business differentiator. Not much emphasis is given to industrial design in India. This area needs to be emphasised and we at Businessworld are championing this cause.”

In its third year now, the Businessworld-NID Design Excellence Awards have earned recognition as India’s premier corporate design awards and have got an overwhelming response from the corporate sector.

This year the categories have been revised keeping in mind the current scenario and latest trends in product design under which designers and corporates can send in their entries, based not on the product categories themselves, but on the role that they play in an individual’s life.

The Design Excellence Awards will be spanning across categories like home, person, office, mobility, society-public spaces, healthcare, future (concept design) as well as Designer of the Year.

Eminent experts from the field of product design will be judging the entries. The panel comprises Ravi Sawhney, Managing Director, RKS Design, USA; Jae Jin Shim, ICSID Board member, Korea; Lorraine Justice, ICSID, China; Sujata Keshavan Guha, Managing Director, Ray and Keshavan; and Professor Lalit Das, M Des, IIT Delhi.

Individuals, corporate houses and students have been invited to send in their entries latest by October 30.
