near 20 years of recognizing asia’s best designs

 

Launched by the Hong Kong Design Centre in 2003, the DFA Design for Asia Awards was established to recognize projects in the region that demonstrate design excellence. Each winner enhances Asian methods of thinking to find new solutions to social issues. The sought-after accolade has rewarded 2,000 winning entries over its near 20-year history, soon to be added to by the 2023 edition.

 

Being one of the globally acknowledged awards in the design industry, the ‘DFA Design for Asia Awards’ has never
stopped promoting Asian design excellence to the world. With the Awards serving as a catalyst, we continue to honour and celebrate Asian design’s contributions to the globe, and at the same time foster cultural exchanges and encourage cross-disciplinary collaborations. We are excited to see the creative and innovative solutions from designers who cut across borders to drive positive impacts all over the world,‘ said Prof. Eric Yim, Chairman of Hong Kong Design Centre.
