DDW application process

We're excited you want to participate in DDW! You can submit an application for your project between 1 April and 1 July via My DDW. Don't have an account yet? Then create one first. From 1 July the possibility to apply will close and you will no longer be able to apply.

There are 3 steps in the application process. We are happy to explain to you how it works.

Step 1

The first step in your application is to submit your project via My DDW. Once you have an account and are logged in, navigate to 'projects' in the left hand menu, and click 'add new project'. Please provide as much information as possible in the form. That makes it easier to assess your project. Want to know what we're looking for? View the selection criteria. And read more about the participation costs.

Please note: projects can only be submitted via My DDW. Don't forget to click on 'Submit project' to actually submit your application! We do not assess and accept projects that we receive via e-mail or incomplete forms.

Step 2

Have you submitted your project and has your project been approved? Great! Then it's time to look for a suitable location. Read more about finding a location that suits your project, indicate where you will exhibit and then link that location to your project.

Please note: do you want to be mentioned on the printed map? Then you have until 15 August at the latest to submit your location. Keep in mind that we only list 9-day exhibits on the floor plan.

Step 3

Then it is time for the last step: entering your project information for the programme on the website. This is an important step, because this is the information that visitors and the press see and that DDW uses for various communication purposes. So make sure you fill this in as completely as possible. The programme will go online on 1 September 2022. Put this deadline in your calendar and upload your data on time.
