Winning products will receive the distinctions of ‘Gold Winner’, ‘Winner’ or ‘Honourable Mention’. Participants will also have the unique opportunity to exchange ideas with the jurors in a Meet the Jury session, and be part of the grand award ceremony and Designers’ Night.
The winners of China Good Design 2018 will receive wide-ranging media coverage, and the opportunity to present their company and innovative products on a national stage.
