With the goal of supporting design-driven innovation that enhances global quality of life, WDO endorses a select group of design events, awards, competitions and conferences each year.
Through a variety of promotional benefits, we aim to elevate the international credibility and visibility of our endorsed events. Our networking platforms target an international design community and are viewed by more than 150K subscribers, followers and readers combined. Evidently, this increased visibility translates into higher engagement, attendance and participation at those events. Through these promotional activities, endorsed events also benefit from an exclusive exposure to the WDO network of Members and international stakeholders.
In accordance with our Guidelines for Design Competitions and Guidelines for Design Awards, organizers of endorsed events strive to meet the ethical and professional requirements to ensure that international practices are upheld, which also provides a level and reassurance for event participants.
