The magazine received 1,800 submissions from more than 50 countries for the eighth annual awards. Finalists for the best design products were chosen through an online voting system totaling nearly 62,000 votes, and the final decision will be made by Allen and a team of design experts.

The awards ceremony takes place from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the IAC Building in New York City.
