Objectives
Each year, ico-D endorses a select group of international activities that advance our objective to promote the value of design. Endorsed events demonstrate that they enhance the standards of design, ethics and professional practice.

For design awards, exhibitions and conferences, an ico-D endorsement is recognition that it has been organised to meet international best practice guidelines as outlined (below) under ico-D’s policies and best practices – including jury composition, evaluation criteria and intellectual property protection.
