About Lutz Dietzold
Lutz Dietzold is managing director of the German Design Council since 2002. He studied art history, classical archeology and German studies in Frankfurt.
The German Design Council regards the promotion of young talent as one of its core tasks. It makes it easier for young design talents to enter the professional world and increases their visibility with the international ein&zwanzig competition for up-and-coming designers and the endowed newcomer award of the German Design Award. The finalists of both competitions are networked with the network of the German Design Council and have the opportunity to make relevant contacts.
The German Design Council awards Greencards to 3 selected graduates for the shortlist of the annual ein&zwanzig exhibition in Milan. With this award, the German Design Council wants to help increase the visibility of graduates of German design schools and give them an opportunity to present their work.
