In order to convey to the world the quality image of “Taipei Design”, Taipei City Government organized the “Taipei International Design Award”. Creative designers, teachers and students of design schools, and people with design passion from around the globe are invited to submit design works, to be publicly selected among international design works, as well as serve as creative design exchange platform to discover creative works with commercial potential.
