The 2012 Taiwan International Student Design Competition [TISDC} is now underway - and young designers from all over the world are being invited to take part
Now in its fifth year the 2012 Taiwan International Student Design Competition (TISDC] is open to anyone in under the age of 26 and studying product design, visual design or digital animation at high school, college or university.
Last year, the organisers received over 3,900 entries from 31 different countries, including Brazil, Japan, Lithuania and the UK.
The theme of this year's Taiwan International Student Design Competition [TISDC] is 'Transform':
"The sun rises and sets every day; today a building stands but the next day it may collapse in a disaster - transformations are a hidden but dynamic rule in a world which seems to operate constantly. Evolution, seasonal changes, weather variation and substance transformation into energy - the power of transform stays in our everyday life."
