The Automotive Brand Contest is an international industry competition which pays tribute to outstanding product and communications design and draws attention to the fundamental importance of brands and brand design in the automotive industry.

Use the award to differentiate yourself from the competition and thus contribute to the profile of your own brand and innovation performance.

The Automotive Brand Contest addresses companies in the automotive industry as well as their partners in the supply industry, in design and in brand communication. Companies in the areas of e-mobility and the two-wheeler industry are addressed as well.
