THE 2018 Championship for Innovative Design, which is a cooperative partner of the design competition China Good Design, was launched at the Shenzhen Industrial Museum in Futian District on Thursday.
This year, the competition has made improvements in terms of the format, jury, participants, categories, the materialization of design works and the intellectual property protection of entries.
The competition will be held concurrently in Shenzhen, Zhejiang Province and Shandong Province. Each competition area has different themes and is oriented toward different participants.
According to the organizers, the aim of the design competition is to build a bridge between technological achievements and design creativity, and to integrate technology, design and commerce to help create a batch of new products and brands.
The competition, in cooperation with nearly 200 colleges, has been successfully held for two consecutive years since being launched in 2016.
The collection of entries covers universities in four regions, namely southern, eastern, central and southwestern China. More than 3,000 works have been collected and 60 of them have won awards.
Last year, two of the awarded works were successfully recommended to enter China Good Design and won the creativity award.
Guided by the Innovation Design Alliance of China, the competition is organized by the Nanshan Association for Science and Technology, the Shenzhen Industrial Museum, and the Innovation Design Alliance of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
