The Organizing Committee of the Shenzhen Design Week cordially invites designers from around the world to enter the Shenzhen Global Design Award 2020(Special Edition): Anti-Coronavirus Product Design Award.
The unexpected coronavirus pandemic brought immeasurable losses to our life and society. As the pandemic is currently still raging in many countries and regions, how we cope with it is a common task for all of us, and it raised new topics for the global design communities.
Shenzhen Global Design Award has always been focusing on sustainable development, hence the organizing committee sets up a special edition for 2020 – Anti-Coronavirus Product Design Award. We invite designers and design companies around the world to enter to find more and better solutions to combat this disease. This attempt echoes with the permanent theme of SDA: Design for Sustainability.
The special edition of SDA is supported by the Organizing Committee of the Shenzhen Design Week and organized by the Shenzhen City of Design Promotion Association (SDPA).
The judging panel consists of 5 world-leading designers and managers of design organizations in the field of industrial and product design from different countries. Jury members (including 2 shortlisted jurors) are nominated by the SDA Academic Committee and invited by the SDA Organizing Committee. Biographies of jury members will be published on the official website at least one month before the judging dates.
