The 2020 award ceremony has a new, digital packaging this year. During eight dedicated afternoons, one per category, we celebrate the best of Dutch design.

The 2020 award ceremony has a new, digital packaging. This year sees a first for DDW; ‘DDW TV’. A studio from which DDA will organise a talk show everyday. During these eight dedicated afternoons, one per category, we celebrate the best of Dutch design. 

These talk shows will be presented by a fantastic host, Isolde Hallensleben, and give us the opportunity to take a closer look at the three nominees per category. Who they are, what they do and above all, what their project is about? Trends and developments from the field will be discussed and to top it all off, the winners will be announced. A mixture of content, intimacy and celebration. Below you can see the DDA Award Show Live programming and read which award will be presented and when:
