Established in 1972, the Hong Kong Designers Association (HKDA) is the first of its kind in Hong Kong for practicing designers,design administrators and academics, with aims to encourage the use of quality design and uplift the appreciation of quality design in the community.
HKDA Awards is the most established multi-disciplinary design competitions in Asia-Pacific which organized by HKDA since 1975. From 1980 onwards, it became a biennial event. HKDA Awards is not simply a design competition to honour design excellence. HKDA Awards used design competition as an engine to energize a series of event (seminars, awards presentation ceremony, exhibitions etc) as a yearlong campaign which aims to promote Hong Kong Design to the world and enhance Hong Kong’s image as one of the major creative hubs in Asia-Pacific.
After playing one of the important roles in the design scene of Asia-Pacific for 36 years, HKDA Awards has started accepting entry submissions outside of Asia-Pacific Region in 2011 and has become a global event. It was appropriately renamed to HKDA Global Design Awards (GDA). In HKDA GDA2011, 14 world-class judges had been invited to be the jury panel, attracting thousands of entry pieces from 40 destinations around the world including Mainland China, USA, Great Britain, France, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and so forth. In 2013, we look forward to make HKDA GDA2013 to be another important page of Hong Kong design history.
