This year's theme is 'Fundamental', as in the root, which is associated with quiet exertion, calm reflection and the concept of growth. When returning to the original nature of design, its fundamental value has shown to reflect one's own innovations.

By tracing the origin to understand the surrounding of something, its basic root is a great source of strength in one's growth; the root is an invisible yet powerful force.

Students currently enrolled in high school or above are invited to contribute work in the categories of product design, visual design and digital animation following this theme.

The following prizes will be awarded, each with a certificate:
Project of the Year: NT $400,000 (approx. USD $12 000)
Gold winner (one per category): NT $250,000 (approx. USD $8000)
Silver winner (one per category): NT $150,000 (approx. USD $5000)
