How does it work?

  • Dutch design?

    • Designs executed by a designer or studio established in the Netherlands.
    • The implementation of the design is not bound to the Dutch borders.
    • It is a requirement that the design is realized/ presented/ published in the period between 1 April 2022 and 1 April 2023.
