Beyond its own dedicated programme developing young talent, Global Grad Show collaborates with key industry stakeholders whose initiatives also support projects and students working on innovative ideas.
One of the biggest contributors to this ecosystem is iF, who promotes design and social significance through its design awards and social engagement.
Through the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD, IF encourages students from different disciplines to submit projects addressing the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nation. The winner is selected by an international jury, twice a year. The first round of winners will be announced in May 2020.
Another initiative by iF, aligned with Global Grad Show’s commitment to ideas for a better world, is the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE, which supports projects by established professionals positively contributing to society. Companies, design studios, NGOs, foundations, public and other organizations are encouraged to submit their proposals year-round.
