What’s new this year 2011?

Multiple category entries
This year, it will for the first time be possible to register your product for two different product categories. Please note that registering a product for an additional category is regarded as an independent entry, and thus has to be separately registered and submitted to the competition (for further details see the general terms and conditions).

“Architecture and Interior Design” product category split into two categories
This year, the former “Architecture and Interior Design” category is split into the two categories “Interior Design” (category 10) and “Architecture and Urban Design” (category 11) in order to ensure an even more precise differentiation of the expertise.

Registration fees

Early bird: 200 euros (registration by 3 December 2010)
Regular: 220 euros (registration by 21 January 2011)
Latecomers: 240 euros (registration by 9 February 2011)

The registration fees include the logistic processing as well as the basic presentation of the products submitted for judging. The products will only be judged on location. We charge an additional non-recurring fee for excess sizes:

Fees for excess sizes
Large (from 1m³): 50 euros
XLarge (from 2m³): 100 euros
XXLarge (from 4m³): 150 euros

In the case of very large products (XXLarge), please send a plan with details of the planned presentation of your entry to our logistic department at logistics(at) so we can authorise the space needed.

Additional exhibits
If your registration includes additional exhibits, we will charge 50 euros for each additional exhibit.
This rule does not apply to series consisting of small pieces (for example crockery, cutlery, etc.).
If you submit images to supplement your product, we will charge a one-off lump sum of 50 euros.
