Following the registration period, the International Jury will conduct an online deliberation. The awarding of certifications, the announcement of finalists, the announcement of winners and the nomenclature of the prizes awarded will be as follows.
1. OFFICIAL SELECTION
After the entry deadline, a first evaluation is conducted to determine the OFFICIAL SELECTION of the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN Awards. This first step consists of selecting the qualified entries and preparing them for the international jury’s deliberation.
The Jury will evaluate each project or product based on a point system (1-100). Candidates may receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award depending on their score. The Gold, Silver or Bronze Award Winner title will be given to projects and products having satisfied or surpassed, in the Jury’s eyes, the evaluation criteria of an efficient design.
Projects and products granted a Gold certification (score of 80-100 points) become eligible finalists for Platinum, Top50 and awards of the Year titles.
The finalist announcement will be unveiled online in May 2021.
