Kyoto Global Design Award (KGDA)


Kyoto Global Design Award (KGDA) is an international platform that celebrates the diversity of design from around the world, including Kyoto, one of the oldest cities in the world, based on the concept of "From Kyoto to the World". The company is currently based in Amsterdam.
Since its inception, the award has evolved into an international design competition that provides a comprehensive platform to recognize creative talent from around the world, regardless of origin or nationality. The annual judging brings together dozens of leading experts from various design fields. They use rigorous, fair and structured judging criteria to identify the best and most talented designers and to recognize innovative and functional designs that promote environmental friendliness, sustainability, beauty and usability.



DesignWanted is a design magazine based in Milan, the capital of Design. It shares new content, projects and reports from the world of design, introducing you to the latest trends and ideas.
