➻Innovation of Porcelain Design Franz Award welcomes diversified and innovative porcelain designs, and we hope to promote porcelain culture through competitions. By integrating the global trend and modern concepts into the competition, Franz Award aims to explore the capabilities and potentialities of porcelain works, and then identify life-changing designs.
➻Theme：MOMENT A beautiful memory always begins with a heart-touching moment. Each and every creative idea stems from a moment of inspiration. Life is a fantastic journey filled with adventures, surprise, sweetness and bitterness. People weave the colorful and interesting pieces of life at the moment when they interact with other people, things and Nature.
As the ancient saying goes, “This moment is eternity”. Looking back on the long history of human life, glory and glamour can vanish in the blink of an eye. Men wish to freeze every moment and transform it into eternal beauty. The Franz Award encourages designers to attentively observe the beautiful things around them, demonstrate their creativity, think and design great works to share with the world.
