WHAT ARE THE KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS?

The KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS is a competition to attract beautifully functional product designs,
taking the best of the best to the actual consumer market.
Last year, we received a total of 1,659 entries from product designers in more than 41 countries,
including Japan (1,232 from Japan; 427 from overseas).
This level of interest shows just how much the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS has grown as an international product design competition.
Past awards winners have included hit products like the kadokeshi (eraser),
the Campus Note Paracuruno (notebook), the Beetle Tip (highlighter pen), and the Wagomu (rubber band).
We are looking for any and all ideas to turn into actual products.
Be sure to submit your design for the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS 2016.
