About the Awards:

HKDA Design NextGen Awards (also known as DNA) is a brand new award as a celebration to mark the 40th anniversary of HKDA Global Design Awards (HKDA GDA). It is the student edition of the acclaimed HKDA Global Design Awards, which offers local design students an opportunity to test their strength and creativity. In the meantime, HKDA inaugurates the Best Design Educator Awards to recognise the design tutors who are influential to the awardees. Therefore, the Design NextGen Awards not only exalts the emerging brilliant designers, it also underlines the significance of design education.
