DFA Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award (DFA HKYDTA), organised by the Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), aims to support and cultivate up-and-coming designers and design graduates. Awardees may receive sponsorships to work in overseas renowned design companies or study abroad to unleash their potential.

The programme allows the awardees to further develop and elevate their versatility, resourcefulness and professional knowledge. They will contribute to the development of Hong Kong’s design and creative industries by returning to Hong Kong after completion of their overseas work attachment/ study. As the ambassadors of DFA HKYDTA, they will share their experiences and insights.

Our award judges are highly recognised local or international design professionals and experts, who possess extensive experience in design education and judging for local and international design awards.

Supported by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, Hong Kong Design Institute and School of Design of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, DFA HKYDTA further nurtures the best local design practitioners and design graduates.
