Kyoto Global Design Awards (KGDA) 2024, international competition has been recently opened for entries with aim to recognize designs that have a global influence and a holistic impact on society.

The Best 100 by KGDA aims to recognize designs that have a global influence and a holistic impact on society.

The award involves dozens of leading experts from various design fields, as well as a fair, rigorous, impartial, and structured evaluation process. The award publicly recognizes the excellent and talented designers each year. The influence of the prize goes far beyond the award ceremony and a snapshot of the project. It can transform design projects and styles into global design trends, showcasing innovative and functional designs that promote sustainability, aesthetics, and user experience.
