The Fennia Prize is a Finnish design award. The purpose of the Fennia Prize is to present well-designed products and to encourage firms and companies to apply design in a comprehensive and interactive manner in product development, manufacturing and the corporate image. The prize has been awarded since 2003. The Fennia Prize is awarded as a part of the Fennia Prize – Good design grows global competition.[1]

The prize is awarded every second year to a firm or company. In the competition, there are two series: Product Design Series and Open Series, including, for example, business and service concepts and environments. The prize-winning products are presented to the public at the Fennia Prize exhibition.

Design Forum Finland and the Fennia Group are the organizing bodies of the Fennia Prize - Good design grows global competition. The money for the prizes is donated by the Fennia Group. Design Forum is responsible for the realization of the competition and the related exhibition.[1]

1990-2001 a similar competition was arranged under the title Pro Finnish Design.
