In association and cooperation with the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, SDAY is organized and managed by Shenzhen City of Design Promotion Association. It is the first project within UCCN that aims to reward young and talented designers for their contribution to the development of cities around the world.

SDAY has been successfully held for three editions since its launch in 2013. From Recovery: the Power of Design to Transformation: the Mission of Design, every SDAY shows young designers’ infinite possibilities to the world. The theme of SDAY 2017 is Craftsmanship: The Spirit of Design. 260 entrants, including professionals and students from 21 creative cities in the network, have reached the final judging process, which lasted two days, with nearly 600 pieces of work. 21 entrants and 3 nominators were chosen as winners.

Shenzhen Design Awards for Young Talents (SDAY) 2017 Exhibition will take place in Katowice Poland during the UNESCO Creative Cities Network XII Annual Meeting. The exhibition will be showcasing nearly 100 excellent works of 68 finalists from Shenzhen, Beijing, Macao, St. Etienne (France), Detroit (U.S.), Puebla (Mexico), Dundee (Scotland) etc. We hope that the exhibition will provide a platform for UCCN to have a deep conversation and share new ideas, latest information, and novel design.

The next SDAY is planning to call for entries around June in 2019. This time we sincerely invite every creative city especially Cities of Design to participate as nominators and encourage the creative and talented young designers from these cities to present their best and latest projects. We hope that SDAY can provide a platform for the future development of emmerging designers and assist young talents in building their career. Stay tuned!
