As the longest-running design award that recognizes products created with the Chinese-speaking market in mind, the annual Golden Pin Concept Award (GPCDA) is known to be a gauge for leading design in the community.

The GPCDA 2016 has launched its international call for entries, posing a distinct challenge to designers around the world. International designers in product, visual communications, packaging, and spatial design are encouraged to submit innovative design concepts inspired by philosophical, ideological, and cultural ideas from huaren (Chinese-speaking) communities. For those designers interested in entering Chinese-speaking markets, the GPCDA offers an opportunity to test concepts, build a reputation, and take home one of three cash prizes valued at NT$300,000 (approx. $9,800) or a prestigious Design Mark. The deadline for 2016 entries is June 15.
