Jury Session

All participants whose projects pass the preliminary evaluation by the expert panel submit their competition entries to the jury session. These will be presented in an extensive exhibition in Berlin. This gives the nine-member jury the opportunity to examine all submissions in the original, if possible. The exhibition will also be open to the public after session.

During the session, the jury members determine the nominees and award winners. Several prizes can be awarded in each category, which are to be understood as equal. Directly after the jury session, the nominated competition entries are presented on our homepage. They will also receive the logo "German Ecodesign Award nominated". The winners will be announced and honoured at the award ceremony in the Federal Ministry for the Environment. Find out which projects were nominated and finally received the German Ecodesign Award last year in our winners gallery.
