Professional Jury

All entries will be judged by a professional jury, who will determine the nominations in November. The members of the professional jury are all specialists in their field such as safety, design, research on growth and development of children, retail and media in the pre- and post-natal market. They assess the products primarily in terms of innovation, but also in terms of user-friendliness, design and safety. The votes of the professional jury count for 60% in the determination of the category winners. Meet the judges of the Baby Innovation Award below:
