Golden Pin Design Award

The annual Golden Pin Design Award is the longest-running design award that celebrates products and projects expressly created for and within Chinese-speaking communities. Participating individuals are judged on their ability to innovate in these dynamic regions.


Whether an entrant is already designing for or within Chinese-speaking regions, or is considering a move into these communities, the Golden Pin Design Award offers entrants an unprecedented opportunity to prove their prowess in the world’s largest market.


The award accepts entries in four categories: Product DesignVisual Communication DesignPackaging Design, and Spatial Design. Entered products and projects are assessed in three stages by an expert international jury, which last year included renowned design professionals such as Oki Sato (Japan), Mårten Claesson (Sweden), Bi Xuefeng (China), and Shikuan Chen (Taiwan). 


Second stage winners receive a Golden Pin Design Mark – an indicator of innovation that they can use to market their product or design project. Of these winners, just 15 to 20 receive a Best Design Award.


Registration deadline: June 30, 2017
