Focused issues

Screening of the Good Design Award looks in depth at the meaning and value of entry designs, while considering as key points of evaluation the relationship between the design and various social issues. At the same time as screening of subject entries, the judges try to identify issues and possibilities related to the society of the future. Topical issues are important areas that designs should address for this purpose.
During screening of the Good Design Award, a special team (the Topical Issues Directors) is formed to discuss these issues, subject entries are observed and discussed across screening units with regard to their possibilities in future society and the roles and meanings of design, and then, following screening, topics and future possibilities for each issue are announced as recommendations.
