The Design for Asia Awards (DFA Awards) presentation ceremony was successfully held on December 2 and 4 in Hong Kong, attended by industry leaders, political and business celebrities from around the world at the gala dinner of Business of Design Week

"The DFA Awards is not just an annual design event for Asia – it has evolved into an influential discussion platform for Asia and international designers alike. Together, we can create world-changing design in Asia and for Asia, yet also for all," said Freeman Lau, vice-chairman of Hong Kong Design Centre‘s (HKDC) Board of Directors.

Organised by HKDC, with Create Hong Kong of the HKSAR Government as major sponsor, the DFA Awards underpins the role of designers in society and celebrates design leadership and exemplary design in Asia since its launch in 2003. This prestigious accolade also testifies to the rising force of emerging designers in Hong Kong. Through five major award programmes (DFALAA, DFADLA, DFAWOCD, DFA Design for Asia Awards and DFAHKYDTA), the DFA Awards has grown in international influence throughout Asia.
