Contest info


Organised by the Taipei City Government, the eleventh edition of Taipei International Design Award is now open for entries.

Creative designers, teachers and students of design schools and people with design passion from around the globe are invited to submit design works, to be publicly selected among international design works, as well as serve as creative design exchange platform to discover creative works with commercial potential.

You are encouraged to use universal design to improve the city's economic, social, environmental, and cultural development by providing its users with a safer, harmonious, and more convenient lifestyle.

There are three main categories:

Industrial Design (works that can be mass-produced, including transportation tools, equipment, daily utilities and household goods, IT and home appliances, fashionables, etc.)
Visual Communication Design (identity, posters, packaging and publications)
Public Space Design (spaces for public usage, governmental buildings and certain private establishments)

Moreover this year, for the first time, a cross-category “Inclusive Design Award” will be set up, with the theme of playground equipment or playgrounds.
