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 1,442 entries from product designers in more than 29 countries,
including Japan (1,144 from Japan; 298 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), and the Beetle Tip (highlighter pen).
Are you a product designer? Would you like to see your work marketed to consumers around the world?
Then be sure to submit your design for the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS 2015.
