SIDA, the Shenzhen Industrial Design Profession Association, and Desall.com, invite the international community of designers to design the official gadget/souvenir for all the attendees of the Shenzhen International Industrial Design Fair 2018.
This partnership between SIDA and Desall will give the chance to all participants to get in touch with the "Silicon Valley of hardware" - as Shenzhen is often dubbed - and will provide an exclusive opportunity to take part in the largest Industrial Design event in all Asia. The winners will be invited to showcase their works at the event with a free booth, free advertising and other services specified in the brief, equal to about EUR 11,000. The official award ceremony will take place in Shenzhen on the night of November 05th. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the organisation.
The theme of this-year edition of the fair, "Design drives [knowledge] drives design", will also represent the topic of the award. Participants are thus invited to leverage on the great technological expertise and consumers products tradition of the area and design an electronic gadget/souvenir that will be produced in time for the fair and offered to all attendees, as a portable and easy to carry item for frequent travellers.
All projects will be evaluated by a jury consisting of high-level representatives of SIDA and Desall according to several criteria as specified in detail in the brief.
Participation is free of charge and open to any age or nationality.
Deadline for submissions: September 13th, 2018
