The call for entries has opened for Taiwan’s Golden Pin Design Award (GPDA) 2016 –the only international “huaren” (Chinese-speaking)-focused design award in the world, inviting designers from around the world to flaunt products and projects that cater to the global huaren community.
In 2015, the Taiwan Design Center, the executors of the Golden Pin Design Award, received a record-setting 2360 entries from a diverse number of countries. Now in its third year of accepting international submissions, this unique award offers designers and companies around the world valuable bilingual brand exposure for their product or design projects. Entries to the GPDA are accepted in four categories: Product Design, Visual Communication Design, Packaging Design, and Spatial Design.
As Taipei City proudly hosts the World Design Capital 2016, the gaze of the international community is falling on innovation in design for huaren communities like never before. The GPDA seeks to honor the most innovative design products and projects created within and for this market, giving contemporary huaren designers a stage on which they can be recognized. The registration of 2016 Golden Pin Design Award ends on June 30th, 2016.
