BEIJING 18 APRIL 2014:  Winning entries for the 2014 competition were announced in a glilttering ceremony in Beijing. The winners in each of the nine categories and the overall winner were announced in a ceremony hosted by Chris Bangle, former design chief of BMW.

For the first time ever, we awarded the "Most Successful School" of the year accolade, and the winner was the China Central Academy of Fine Art school.

The competition, in its 5th year, attracted record entries from a record number of design schools. The judges were highly complimentary about the quality and innovation of design from the students.

Also announced were the winners of the seating design competition organised by Lear, which was the premier sponsor of Car Design Awards China this year.




2014 Awards ceremony will be held at the time of the Beijing auto show.

On a glittering night of celebration, the work of the finalists will be on display and the winners will be announced. All shortlisted students, and their teachers, will be invited to attend as guests of Car Design News
