Every year, we evaluate the Henry van de Velde Award categories. Are all the aspects of design represented, do they show the largeness of the sector, will the excellence of design be clear based on the categories? The result: you can register your product, service or project for 2020 in 7 categories. Some designs can be relevant in several categories. Just explain the relevance per categorie. The jury makes the final decision in which categorie the design will be placed.
