Copenhagen (Denmark) - The call for nominations is open for the INDEX: AWARD 2009, one of the biggest design awards in the world, presented every two years in Copenhagen. INDEX: is dedicated to change global mindsets by demonstrating and exploring the concept of "Design to Improve Life".

INDEX: AWARD does not categorise design according to traditional labels since these categories do not fully reflect the interdisciplinary approach employed in most interesting modern design. INDEX: asks that the nomination bodies think horizontally, across design categories and industries, when selecting their nominees for the five categories vital to human life: body, home, work, play and community. Under the focus of Design to Improve Life, each nomination is evaluated according to three parameters: Form, Impact and Context.

People from all over the world can submit nominations for INDEX: Award 2009, including INDEX: Regional Ambassadors, members of INDEX:, professional design institutions registered by INDEX:, members of the jury and private individuals. Nominated designs can include works by designers, design teams, public and private companies as well as design students and design enthusiasts from all over the world. The complete rules for nomination are available on the awards website.

Nominating for INDEX: AWARD 2009 is an online-only process. To nominate for INDEX: AWARD you will need to create a nomination account and follow the six steps outlined on the INDEX: website.

The winning designs are chosen by an international jury consisting of leading designers, design researchers, design writers and design thinkers from Europe, Asia and the U.S. An award of €100 000 is given to the winner in each of the five categories.

Deadline for nominations is 8 December 2008.
