NIKON WINS FIVE RED DOT AWARDS INCLUDING ‘BEST OF THE BEST’ FOR THE Z 9
Amsterdam, Netherlands, 16th May 2022: Today Nikon Europe is thrilled to announce that five products have received the "Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022" recognition. It was a particularly successful year for Nikon, with its full-frame flagship mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z 9, being crowned the “Best of the Best”. Other recipients include the beautifully designed Nikon Z fc and NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S mid-telephoto micro lens.
Products from 60 countries were submitted to the world-class design competition, which were then judged by a panel of esteemed design specialists from around the world. Degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics and durability were all taken into consideration throughout the deliberation process before the winners were announced.
The winning products will be showcased later this year at an exclusive exhibition held at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany.
