The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) has launched the online gallery for the inaugural World Design Impact Prize.
The project was created to recognise, empower and stimulate socially responsible design projects around the world.
A total of 22 projects from five continents are in the running to be recognised as the first World Design Impact Prize winner.
From student-made product designs introducing dynamic and sustainable solutions, to internationally renowned initiatives striving to improve quality of life, Icsid Members nominated a diverse group of industrial design driven projects.
"We strongly believe that the key element of the World Design Impact Prize that makes it one of the most relevant, inclusive and unique design prizes in the world is the involvement of our members and the public at large," stated Icsid President Dr. Mark Breitenberg.
"By showcasing these remarkable projects to the public through an interactive and sharable online gallery, we hope to assist them in gaining widespread recognition and receiving the support they need to continue their pursuit of bettering the world through design."
