about gda

Established in 1972, the Hong Kong Designers Association (HKDA) is the first of its kind in Hong Kong for practicing designers and design administrators, with aims to uphold the status of design practitioners and to encourage the use and the appreciation of quality design in the community.

HKDA Global Design Awards (HKDA GDA) is one of the most established multi-disciplinary design competition (Graphic, New Media, Product and Spatial) in Asia-Pacific region organized by HKDA since 1975. From 1980 onwards, it became a biennial event. HKDA GDA is not simply a design competition to honour design excellence, but also acts as an engine to energize a series of event (series of seminars, awards presentation ceremony, exhibitions etc.) as a yearlong campaign that 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.

In HKDA GDA2011, 14 world-class judges have been invited to form the jury panel, attracted thousands of entries from 40 destinations around the world including USA, Great Britain, France, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Mainland China, Hong Kong and so forth. In 2013, we look forward to making HKDA GDA2013 an important page in the design history.
