Winning submissions#It’s great to win, but being nominated is an award in itself.
The Young Pin Design Award is the official award bestowed by YODEX. It provides an important platform for design students to showcase their talents and achieve their dreams. Every year, submissions from gifted students are accepted and reviewed in two stages by professional judges, who handpick the future stars of the design industry. The exhibition organizer received 5,856 submissions in 2020 from 138 departments across 64 institutions, but only 100 submissions will take home the award. Competition is fierce!
This year, a special Young Pin Circular Design Award will be presented in conjunction with the Sustainable and Circular Economy Development Association (SCEDA) to promote environmental protection and sustainable development by encouraging students to incorporate circular design concepts into their work and come up with innovative ways to address societal needs.
