Since 2003 the National Design Awards are presented annually at the festival Month of Design for significant contributions to Slovene design. The award has been founded by the Zavod Big. Recognising design excellence on the corporate, individual, and institutional level, the National Design Awards are granted in many categories from a number of fields, including interior and product design, architecture, technology and industrial design, fashion, and more. The main National Design Awards are Designer of the Year, Interior of the Year, Success Story, Timeless Slovenian Design, and Young Prospective Designers.
