In 2017, the first edition of the Shenzhen Design Week (SZDW) inaugurated the Shenzhen Global Design Award (SDA) with a total prize of US$ 1 million. After the global collection in nearly a year, a total of 1,014 works from 12 countries and regions have participated in the selection. Among all of the entries from China, Shenzhen contestants lead the way with 305 entries which impressed the jury with the city’s capacity for innovation and development in design.
The SZDW has invited eight world-leading designers to form a jury and select the winners for the SDA with a professional, rigorous and fair attitude. The awarding ceremony of the inaugural SDA was held on the evening of April 20th 2018, unveiling the much-anticipated $ 200,000 Grand Award.
The outstanding entries and winning projects of SDA were displayed at the SZDW and won applauses from more than 150,000 visitors.
The second SDA is planning to call for entries around August. This time it will be upgraded and include more design disciplines to allow more creative and talented designers from inter-disciplinary fields to showcase their projects. SDA provides treasurable opportunities for the award-winning and other excellent designers and projects to be presented to the Chinese and international market. Stay tuned!
