Designverse Awards 2024-2025

*New categories and awards for "Space - Concept" and "Product - Concept".

Designverse Ranking is an important component of the Designverse platform, developed based on global design awards and professional media data and algorithms. It fills the market awareness gap for development and design agencies. Through user co-construction and continuous collection, refinement, extraction, and summarization of actual projects and events, it allows global development agencies and design resource agencies pursuing beauty and quality to connect. 

Designverse Awards is an award platform that connects design resource agencies and development agencies, accurately targeting the design resource pool of design subfields for development agencies, and empowering design resource agencies. Through the unique functions of big data and data monitoring, search ranking, resource linking, and brand promotion provided by the award platform, it allows them to reflect on their position in the design industry and solidify their brand through the promotion and publicity services of the award platform. 

Designverse Awards aims to recognize design agencies, brands/companies, and highly influential events that have made outstanding contributions to the big design industry chain. Through rankings' digital filtering and platform empowering by content promotion, we provide participating agencies with long-term brand growth incubation and consulting services, support originality with awards, and help participating agencies enhance the value of their digital assets, enabling them to be discovered and recognized by the industry, and to tap into a wider range of potential business opportunities. Furthermore, the award serves as a platform center for publicizing intellectual property rights, assisting in confirming the publication dates of entries' intellectual property, supporting and encouraging the originality of entries, and providing support and endorsement for the rights protection of entries.

*Design resource agencies: including scheme design, technical consultants, professional consultants, specialized consultants, operation consultants, etc.

*Development agencies: such as government, government development platforms, developers, brand owners from various industries, high-quality private owners, etc.

The final jury panel of the Designverse Awards consists of industry leaders who have a concrete understanding of the big design industry ecosystem, accumulated cooperation experience, and judgment, as well as specialized judges with international perspectives and experience leading renowned works. Together, they evaluate the "Designverse Awards Jury Grand Prize" in various subcategories of space, product, and brands/major events categories, and select the "Designverse Awards Outstanding Prize" from them.
