In an effort to provide a platform for important new developments in materials, the awards recognise outstanding achievement in key areas of creativity, feasibility and development potential.

Manufacturers, designers, developers, design engineers, architects and students all competed for a variety of awards. More than one hundred contestants from seven countries competed while twenty-six winners received the iF seal of excellence.

Six outstanding entrants were selected for an additional honour, the iF gold statue.
