Welcome to:
APDC AWARDS 2013/2014 Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards for Elite
“Celebrating Creativity thinking will be the essence of APDC awards for 2013-2014”

For most major countries and cities around the world, Creativity is seen as the engine of the new economy. Creative economies reflect the basic shift in the structure of the  global economy from one based on the production of goods and services to a knowledge based economy focused on the creation, transfer and use of intellectual property in all its forms.

Our Creativity drives economies in (at least) two ways.

The first is as a pervasive force in all economic activity.

The challenge for all industry is to think creatively, to constantly reinvent itself, to bring new, value-added design and distinguishing features that will result in unique, distinctive and original environments, products and services. Computerization and information and communications technologies revolutionized every area of the economy a decade ago. Creativity is the equivalent force today. It is critical to every business process in every sector, and to improved function of products and services of all kinds. Creativity as a practice is really the basis of a creative economy. It is the new engine of prosperity itself. Jurisdictions which do not learn this are condemned to a losing battle against the drive to lower costs.


The second way in which creativity drives economies is through a more specific range of industries and economic activity, including the creative and cultural industries.

But creative industries or sectors also include science and information and communications technology (ICT), financial services, life sciences, etc. – any activity where intellectual property and innovation is at the heart of economic activity.


APDC recognizes that designers’ Creativity plays an essential role in building and sustaining our urban community and maintains it socially and economically healthy. Therefore by celebrating the Creativity of its members ,APDC wishes to promote, and support a sustainable economy that attracts businesses, investment, increases employment, and enhances our visual environment.

APDC invites you to present projects that, by their concepts, materials or their total avant-garde thinking, contribute to the enhancement of our society.
