Junior Award: boost for those starting out on their career Even successful designers were once starting out on their career, and they know how difficult it is to gain access to the creative industry. \u201cThe Red Dot: Junior Award aims to help young people get a foothold in the industry\u201d explains Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. \u201cWhen they have the opportunity to try out their ideas and make them a reality, this results in wonderful achievements\u201d the design expert says. The remit of the Red Dot Award is to provide a platform for emerging talents and to give awards to the best of these newcomers. Winning the internationally recognised Red Dot is an opportunity for new creatives to make their breakthrough in the design industry and to convince potential clients of their own expertise.
