Established in 1957, The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) is one of three globally recognized design organizations and also one of the coadjutants of the IDA Congress.
ICSID serves as a unified voice of over 50 nations through which members can express their views and be heard on an international platform. Since its inception, ICSID has continued to develop its wide-reaching network of students and professionals devoted to the recognition, success and growth of the industrial design community.
To ensure the quality of entrants and the impartiality of judging, the Fourth ‘LotusPrize’ International Design Competition has sought for the endorsement of ICSID. The juries for the competition will consist of ICSID board members and iF juries. Between 2008-2014, all four ‘LotusPrize’ competitions has received endorsements from ICSID. Through their promotion and support, we’ve had a wider range of participation from excellent designers with high quality entries and received more recognition and interest on an international level.
