2023 THEME: "The Power of Design"

Design has the power to shape the world. It solves problems, tells stories, and evokes emotions. Design is more than aesthetics. It’s a means to educate, to inspire, to communicate what we believe in. Design has the extraordinary ability to influence perceptions, challenge possibilities, and make a lasting impact on the future.
