Singapore Design Awards
The Singapore Design Awards honours outstanding designers, design students and design practices for their innovative design and human-centric approach. It aims to raise awareness for the region and the strategic role of designers with Singapore at the heart of a dynamic Southeast Asia.
As an award that has always been dedicated to celebrating design, Singapore Design Awards is committed to acknowledge and affirm the people behind the scenes – the ones leading the charge and a new blood of innovators in the right step forward. This year, we’ve changed the game to acknowledge the evolution of a designer’s role. Though designers are natural problem solvers, they cannot tackle all the issues alone.In partnership with Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment and Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, the awards has been redesigned to be one that’s relevant to the current challenges that Singapore is facing and a launchpad for designers to turn them into opportunities for brilliant design ideas and solutions.
