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 1,307 entries from product designers in more than 44 countries,
including Japan (929 from Japan; 378 from overseas).
This level of interest shows just how much the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS has grown as an international product design competition.
We are looking for any and all ideas to turn into actual products.
Be sure to submit your design for the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS 2017.

THEME

Beautiful Lifestyle

Encountering something new
leads to new conversations,
spreading new ideas,
and bringing new people together.
It’s the start of a new life.
What kind of design would pave the way to such a new experience?
It’s something that opens new doors and goes on to establish new genres.
We look forward to the new stories you create.
