Taipei Design Award (TDA) 2024

The 2024 Taipei Design Award (TDA) is now calling for entries. The organizers are looking for outstanding international designs across multiple disciplines.

The TDA collects outstanding works to build Taipei as a hub for creative design, fostering business potential, social impact, and strengthening enterprise value. This award is not just a competition but a platform for creative exchange, and improving overall industry value.

This year’s total prize money is up to NT$ 4,4 million including NT$ 600,000 for the grand prize.

Taipei is a dynamic and innovative city, and the Taipei Design Award has been organized by the Industrial Development Bureau of Taipei Municipal Government since 2008, and this year marks its 17th edition. With the vision of “Making design the driving force for shaping a better future”, the organizers will publicly collect outstanding works and build Taipei City into a platform for creative design convergence, so as to explore creative design with business potential, encourage social design, expand their influence, and strengthen the added value of enterprises and products, thereby enhancing the development of the design industry.

In order to encourage designers to take design as their own responsibility, solve the problems that the public and society must face, jointly promote sustainable urban development, and strengthen the close link between the Taipei Design Award brand and the Taipei City, the Taipei Impact Design Award was also established to collect works, activities or solutions that use “design” to improve the well-being of Taipei citizens, enhance Taipei’s urban image, or promote Taipei’s industrial development.

The Taipei Design Award is not only a competition, but also a platform for creative exchange and design sharing, promoting cross-domain dialogue and creating a better life, thus driving the value of the overall industry chain.

The organizers are looking forward to receiving entries in the following categories:

  • Industrial Design — design works that can be mass-produced, including general and digital application, transportation tools, equipment and instruments, daily utilities and household goods, IT and home appliances, etc.
  • Visual Communication Design — designs of digital graphic creations, identity, posters, packaging and printing
  • Public Space Design — Open space provided for public use, government buildings and private establishments that are partially provided for public use.

Everyone around the world are welcomed to participate individually or as a group with one member as main correspondent.

Entries must be original creations of the contestants completed after 1 January 2022.

The competition was known as Taipei Industrial Design Award between 2008 and 2011, re-named in 2012 as Taipei International Design Award, and re-named again in 2022 as Taipei Design Award, and has been so called since.
