About IDC Awards

IDC Awards give full play to the bridge role between the international awards and competition designs, break the gap among design domains, and support designers to explore the core problem. Furthermore, the Awards are also helping far-sighted designers to grasp new market opportunities, achieve cross-border cooperation, create new values, and solve problems which are meaningful.
