Organized by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, Taiwan International Student Design Competition (TISDC) is one of the most significant student design competitions in the world. Since its establishment in 2008, the competition has attracted over 30,000 entries from 50 countries/ regions. Online registration fee is FREE. The competition features four categories: Product Design, Visual Design, Digital Animation, and Brand Specified.

This year, we are proudly to announce that we partnered up with 15 international organizations. TISDC serves a platform for art/design to exchange locally and internationally. We strive to receive more works internationally and we hope to see more works from different regions.

Four categories of TISDC comprise Product Design, Visual Design, Digital Animation, and Brand Specified. In addition to sparking the students’ creative energies, artwork model is not required in Product Design category and Brand Specified category which TISDC accepts conceptual representation. Likewise, the Brand Specified category of this year is sponsored by iSee Taiwan Foundation. The foundation authorizes the design requirement and seeks artwork with potential production, with the aim of this requirement can guide the students to focus on the implementation of students’ creativity. As a result, the academic fields can closely bridge the gap with the design industries.

The theme of this year is OPEN. The artwork is to convey the concept of OPEN. OPEN is open-minded with feeling the everyday nuances. Having open perspectives is to look to the future with an all-inclusive attitude. 2016 Taiwan International Student Design Competition is calling for submission from June 1st, 2016 to July, 25th, 2016.
