The BNO Piet Zwart Prize is an honourable award for a designer who is of great significance for the design profession. It can involve all disciplines that are important for the stature and development of the design profession. This year, however, the jury will pay extra attention to submissions by product/industrial designers to aim for a balance in the winners of previous years and the various design disciplines.

As a designer you meet one or more of the criteria below:
- There is excellent work in one or more design disciplines: the design has therefore been made at a high quality, professional level for a long time;
- There is an extraordinary contribution to the meaning and prestige of the discipline;
- There is an exemplary role in relation to the next generation(s) of designers
