Car Design Awards China 2017; CDN 中国汽车设计大赛获奖名单公布

Liu Xingru & Zhang Heng, Hunan University: Student Design of the Year

Car Design News has announced the winners of its annual Car Design Awards China competition at a special evening event held at 800 Show in Shanghai. Hosted by Chris Bangle, this was attended by over 300 global design professionals, not to mention China's most talented design students.

4月18日晚在上海800秀,Car Design News宣布了本年度中国汽车设计大赛获奖选手名单。由Chris Bangle主持、300多名全球汽车设计师和中国顶尖设计专业学生参加了颁奖盛典。

The competition was a great success once again in 2017, seeing us receive 299 entries from 98 schools across China and confirming this contest’s importance in finding the very best design students in the country. The work of the finalists in each of the ten awards categories was showcased at the event, and provided a superb opportunity for the upcoming designers to discuss their work with prospective employers.

本届大赛再获成功,共收到来自全国98所院校的299个参赛作品,证明CDN大赛是挖掘中国最优秀学生设计师的重要途径。十个奖项的决赛作品在活动现场展出,为在场的中国汽车设计新星提供了绝佳时机与专业设计师们交换意见、畅所欲言。

Uniquely, the Car Design Awards China contest gives students the chance to work to real design briefs set by the world’s best car makers, and are judged by some of China’s top car designers - all of whom were keen to express how impressed they were with the quality of this year’s entries.

CDN中国汽车设计大赛专业性独树一帜,为学生创造机会完成世界知名汽车制造商出具的真实的设计任务书,并得到国内顶尖汽车设计师专家的点评。评委团对今年参赛作品的超高水平深表赞叹。大赛历时八届,从这里走出去的诸多设计师现已进入国内外顶尖设计室工作。

Over the eight years that it’s been running, the competition has kickstarted the careers of many designers who are now working in top studios, both in China and worldwide. The 2017 winners of the top award, Best Student Design, will receive a fully funded, four-week Cultural Immersion Workshop placement at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit – and as it’s a team effort, Car Design News and CCS have decided to fund both the winning students for the first time in the event’s history.

年度总冠军即“年度最佳学生设计奖”的两名获奖者将双双获得全额资助,前往底特律创意设计学院参加为期四周的Cultural Immersion Workshop。Car Design News和创意设计学院认可这是团队努力的成果,首次资助两名获奖学生共同赴美进修。
