The best German Design schools are the backbone of the organisation, support the initiative financially and urge their recent graduates to get online.

The German Design Graduates Initiative has various ambassadors who support graduates every year with cash prizes or green cards.

Prizes and supports are awarded by representatives from the worlds of culture and business.

The German Design Graduates Initiative is financially supported by sponsors such as the German Design Council, Ambiente and Nils Holger Moormann.

The jurors, coming from various design fields, select projects from the Archive for the anual German Design Graduates Show.
