Golden Pin calls for more int’l en­tries

The China Post - - ARTS -

Na­tional Tai­wan Uni­ver­sity of Arts (NTUA) and a mem­ber of the jury in this year’s Golden Pin com­pe­ti­tion, en­tries will be as­sessed in two stages, with win­ners vy­ing to re­ceive one of 13 cash prizes, to­tal­ing NT$1 mil­lion. All win­ners re­ceive ad­di­tional benefits in the form of pro­mo­tional and ex­hi­bi­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered by the Golden Pin Con­cept De­sign Award team, he pointed out. But what is an award-win­ning de­sign?

“Don’t look into the win­ning de­signs from last year’s com­pe­ti­tion for de­sign ideas,” warned Ho. “Par­tic­i­pants should look into con­tem­po­rary is­sues and ways to solve th­ese prob­lems with orig­i­nal de­sign.”

By look­ing into new ways to solve prac­ti­cal prob­lems, Ho be­lieves that your ideas could “make a dif­fer­ence” with the mem­bers of the jury ei­ther for the Golden Pin Con­cept De­sign Award and Golden Pin De­sign Award. Last year, the for­mer at­tracted a record-break­ing 1,901 prod­ucts and projects from eight coun­tries and re­gions, and close to 40 per­cent of the 416 De­sign Mark win­ners were from out­side Tai­wan. Prod­ucts and projects from main­land China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore were among the top 21 Best De­sign win­ners.

As the ex­e­cuter of the an­nual Golden Pin com­pe­ti­tion, which is or­ga­nized by the Industrial Devel­op­ment Bureau, Min­istry of Eco­nomic Af­fairs and spon­sored by Can­meg AVEDA, the Tai­wan De­sign Cen­ter hopes to at­tract even more can­di­dates this year.
