|We will invite prize winners to the commendation ceremony
in Osaka. JDF will cover all airfares (and for residents of Japan, all domestic
transportation fees) and accommodation expenses. (For group winners, expenses
will be provided for one representative each.) Details will be communicated
to each applicable entrant.
We will also invite prize winners to an international design conference to be held concurrently with the commendation ceremony. A presentation session of prize winning works will take place as part of the conference program, offering prize winners opportunities to share their accomplishments as designers with design experts from around the world.
During this event, all participating prize winners will be presented commemorative gifts.
We will also invite participating prize winners to an international forum that will take place around the time of the above-mentioned events. The forum is designed to offer participants opportunities to engage in intense discussions with distinguished designers and business leaders.
As a gesture of honor to prize winners, their works and personal data will be registered in the JDF Designers Plaza, a designers’ archive comprising prize winners of the JDF International Design Competition.
Some prize winners will be selected to participate in the Design Market scheduled to take place later on (See “ Design Market.”)
