Judging Process and Criteria


Expert jurors in each of the nominated fields from both Singapore and overseas will be appointed for both the 'Designer of the Year' and 'Design of the Year' categories.

The Jury Panels will evaluate and recommend recipients for each Award category in early July 2015. Results will be announced later in the year, during the Award Ceremony in November 2015. Recipients will receive the Award from the President.

The President's Design Award is organised annually. As a merit-based Award, the number of Awards conferred in any given year may vary and is not limited by the Award category.

Judging Process

All complete and eligible submissions will be presented to the Jury Panel for evaluation and shortlist.

Nominees who are shortlisted will be contacted by mid June and invited to give a portfolio / project presentation to the Jury Panels at a date to be confirmed. The Award Secretariat may also arrange site visits for the jurors.

For A&UD projects, nominees will be encouraged to bring along / submit conceptual models that serve to illustrate the key design intent of the project, or part / full models.

For Product and Industrial Designs, Fashion Design, Advertising Design and Visual / Communications projects, nominees are required to bring along / submit their samples/ working copies for judging.
