Project finalists prove to serve both users and the planet

In the end, they have to serve their users and the planet. ’ – Robert Thiemann, Founder of Frame Publishers

An international jury of industry leaders

The Frame Awards values diversity in design disciplines and in personal perspectives. Each Awards category has a separate international jury comprising designers, manufacturers and clients. This means that the best work will be chosen by all industry stakeholders, not just by other designers: retail brands, hospitality providers, cultural institutions, and educators.

Jury members include Marsha Meredith (Aesop Creative Director), Ivy Ross (Google Hardware Design Vice President), Herbert Schilthuis (Heineken Global Director Health), Kave Pour (SPACE10 Co-founder & Managing Director) and Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid Architects Principal) among other leaders in their field.


Public Vote Commences

Following the reveal of the jury’s nominations, the public also gets the chance to vote for their favourite project in each category and decide the People’s Vote on the Awards website.
