Asia Design Prize is an international design prize among designers in the world. This competition discovers novel design concepts and ideas that will lead the future and promote them to the world. Asia Design Prize performs online screening for entries to be evaluated precisely and objectively based on designs without prejudice. Asia Design Prize began as a design contest that explores concept designs to solve social problems in Asia. Design capable of solving problems in Asia such as weather anomaly, polarization, racial discrimination, and food shortage is one of important screening categories along with industrial design, visual design, and spatial design. It will continue to explore social impact designs and make the world a better place.
The most significant value of Asia Design Prize is to provide the most convenient, accurate, and valuable design screening in the world based on big data not on personal competences of evaluators. Designer including companies, design institutes, design studios, professionals, students submit their works in this impartial platform. In the first screening, we do not reveal personal information such as nationality, organization, and name. Interviewers in the first screening are excluded from the second screening. The final screening is conducted as the same way in the first screening. Around 10% of entries are selected as final winners and the class of gold and winner prize is determined. The chairperson of the screening examines the suitability closely in the final winner list, adjusts prize level, and selects the grand prize, which is the top prize. The percentage of result matching with other evaluators is automatically calculated and information is conveyed to all the evaluators.
