Belkin began competing in 2002 and has received a total of nine IDEA Awards, with the last seven awards occurring in the past six years. Belkin’s award-winning design team also made the “Top Corporations” list of companies who have won the most awards in the past six years.
The 2009 jury, composed of 20 world-renowned designers and design thinkers, spent weeks previewing entries online and two-and-a-half days of intense, face-to-face evaluation and debate on IDEA. Judging criteria for each entry focused on nine areas of industrial design excellence: design innovation; benefit to the user; benefit to the client/business; benefit to society; ecological responsibility; appropriate aesthetics and appeal; usability testing; rigor and reliability (Design Research category); and internal factors and methods, implementation (Design Strategy category).
