Description: Taiwan’s Golden Pin Design Award 2018 Call for Entries is now open. An invitation for international companies to prove their design prowess at the most influential design award in the Chinese-speaking world.

Established in 1981, the annual Golden Pin Design Award is the longest-running international design award that celebrates products or projects expressly created for and within huaren (Chinese-speaking) communities. The global huaren community is the world’s largest diaspora and around 1.2 billion people, which is 16 percent of the world’s population, speak Chinese as a first language (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, 2012). The Golden Pin Design Award offers a chance for international companies to share their greatest designs with the huaren community, both in the Greater China region and worldwide.

In the Golden Pin Design Award, there are four categories: spatial design, product design, communication design, and integration design.

Spatial design - Residential space, Office space, Dining space, Recreational and entertainment space, Public space, Architecture and structures, and others.
