Design Award 2006 In his word of greeting, Federal Minister of Economics Michael Glos emphasises: "This year's competition has clearly shown that German and European companies are up among the leaders when it comes to design." The German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology is the sponsor of the official German Design Award and has commissioned the German Design Council, the centre of design expertise in Germany, with the organization of the Design Award, which was founded in 1969 [until 1986 under the name Federal Award for Good Design (Bundespreis Gute Form) and until 2000 under the name Federal Award for Product Design (Bundespreis Produktdesign)]. Companies and individuals cannot submit applications for the Design Award Instead, they must be nominated by the ministries of economics in the individual German 'Länder' (states) or the Federal Ministry of Economics. A prerequisite of this is, however, that the product must already have been awarded a national or international award. Altogether, a maximum of 25 products can be honoured with the German Design Award in the categories Gold or Silver. "The number of prizes has consciously been kept low and we will continue with this policy in the future", explains Andrej Kupetz, General Manager of the German Design Council. "Only in this way can we guarantee a standard of quality appropriate to the prize in the long term". The Design Award for an individual or group of people will be a category of the competition in the future. In this case, too, the prize can only be given to people nominated by the ministries mentioned above.
