The Panel, Juries & Ambassadors

DRIVENxDESIGN leverages the collective intelligence of our global community of multidisciplinary experts to celebrate and recognise extraordinary design.

The Panel

The Advisory Panel brings together our global community of design experts to guide and contribute to DRIVENxDESIGN awards programs, summits and events. Panel members celebrate the creative courage of others, give back to the design community and advocate for the essential role that design plays in our lives.

The Jury

DRIVENxDESIGN invites design experts from across the globe to judge each Awards Program. Each jury is a multidisciplinary collection of subject matter experts that understand the economic, social and cultural benefits of design as well as the practicalities of the category. Jury composition changes each year and is unique to each program. The jury is drawn from the Panel.
