In view of the dependency of the value of the aesthetic economy on the level of innovative energy, the Council for Hakka Affairs is extending the spirit of the Taiwan Hakka Expo – the “Good Hakka” of Hakka lovers - to hold this competition. It is expected to utilize the originating Hakka cultural creative design and the layout of technology, humanity, aesthetics and economic cultural network to further bring the application of Hakka culture into the wide market.

This design competition is divided into the groups: “Greeting Hakka with Tung Blossoms”, “Hakka fabric”, “Hakka gifts” and “Hakka T-shirts”. The Greeting the Hakka with Tung Blossoms group uses the Hakka Tung Blossom Festival as the theme to design daily necessities or crafts that can be provided to make samples, mass produce and commercialize. The top prize for this groups is NT$ 200,000.

The Hakka fabric group designs creative products with creative fabric patterns that have Hakka characteristics. The top prize for this group is NT$ 150,000.
