Singapore - Global Age-Friendly Design Awards 2010 (GADA 2010) invites students, design professionals, design firms and the general public to submit their ideas on products that can change and enhance the lifestyles of the elderly. Themed 'Redefining Age', this event is being organised by >60 Design Centre, in partnership with Design Singapore Council and with the support of Temasek Polytechnic.

Previously known as International Design Awards in 2008, the competition drew interest from more than 200 participants from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. This year it hopes to increase the number of entries from local and international design communities and agencies.

Award theme

With the improvements in health care, medical advances and innovations in preventative medicine, people are living longer. "Redefining Age" is not a new genre of design, nor a separate specialism, but an approach to design in general and an element of business strategy that seeks to ensure that mainstream products, services and environments are accessible to the largest number of people across different generations.

Eligibility

This competition is open to all designers, both professionals and students, as well as those who are interested in design. Any participant who is younger than 18 years old is required to obtain his/her Parent/Legal Guardian's consent on the Entry Form.

Submission

Submissions must be the original design of participants and must not have been previously released commercially or submitted to other competitions. Designs from both group and individual work can be submitted for this competition.

The deadline for entries is 4 October 2010, 18:00 (GMT +8).

Entry to this competition is free of charge.

Exhibition of winner's work

All winning entries will have their work exhibited during the International Conference on Design for Ageing in Singapore from 18 to 20 November 2010.
