GDA has been one of the most established multi-disciplinary design competition in the Asia-Pacific region organized by HKDA since 1975. It is not simply a design competition to honour global design excellence, but also acts as an engine to energise a series of events as a yearlong campaign that aims to promote Hong Kong designs internationally and to enhance Hong Kong as one of the major creative hubs in Asia-Pacific.
