As always, the award aims to promote both the most distinctive installations on show in Milan and content, projects, activities of interest to the international project community (Special Mentions).

The projects that will compete for the public's votes will be 16 and visible on the dedicated section, which can be explored through a system of event pages with content and photos of the installations. Voting will open from Wednesday 17 April and close by Saturday 20 April at 12 noon. Users will be able to vote after registering on the platform.

The selected projects, through a joint effort between the editorial staff and the Technical Committee itself, will compete for the 4 Special Mentions in the categories of Interaction, Sustainability, Technology and Communication.

This year sees the launch of a sixth award: the Special Media Partner Mention, which is intended to give value and authority to's media collaborations. The platform's Media Partners will be called upon to express their judgement from the shortlist of the 16 most memorable projects. A "critics'" prize that will stand alongside the one chosen by the public.

Once again this year, the Fuorisalone Awards will be made - in collaboration with Pollodesign Factory and Tiburtini - as a stylisation of the traditional pin that has characterised activities for 20 years. A tribute to what has always represented the official map through which to orient oneself among installations, exhibitions, parties and discussion panels during the most important week for the design industry.
