Designverse Awards aims to recognize outstanding contributions made by design agencies, brands/enterprises, and influential events in the broader design industry. This award serves as a platform that connects design resource agencies with development agencies, providing access to a pool of design resources for the latter while supporting the former. The platform offers unique features such as big data and data monitoring, search ranking, resource linking, and brand promotion.
These functions enable design resource agencies to comprehensively evaluate their positions in the industry and improve their innovation and design capabilities. Additionally, utilizing the publicity and promotional services provided by this award platform can enhance these agencies’ own brand building endeavors._

The final review judging panel is composed of 36 industry leaders who have a specific understanding of the design industry ecosystem,
accumulated experience in collaboration, and sound judgment, as well as specialized jurors with international perspectives and extensive experience leading renowned works. Together, they will collectively select the “Designverse Awards Jury Grand Prize” in various sub-categories under space, product, and brands/major events categories. From these selections, the “Designverse Awards Outstanding Prize” will be determined, including six Outstanding Prize in space category (architecture, landscape, interiors, technical consultants, professional consultants, and specialized consultants), four Outstanding Prize in product category (residential, office, social and leisure, transportation), and two Outstanding Prize for annual major events.
