SHANGHAI 19 APRIL 2015:  The winners of this year's Car Design Awards China have just been announced at an exclusive event held at the 800 Show event space in Shanghai. The Awards were hosted by British designer Peter Stevens, and presented to an audience of over 300 global design professionals and China's finest automotive design students.

As ever, the project work of all shortlisted finalists was on display, giving a superb opportunity for the latest generation of young designers to discuss their work and future careers with prospective employers.

Now in its sixth year, the Car Design Awards China competition has been responsible for shining a spotlight on some outstanding new design talents, many of whom will undoubtedly go on to help shape the industry over the coming years.

Recognising that even the best most promising talent needs great teaching, Car Design Awards China will again make a special Award to recognise the design school which has had most success in nurturing student development, as expressed by the results of this competition.

All 2015's shortlisted entries will feature the school of the student, while the finalists will see also give publicity to their individual teachers. See the league table on this site which tracks the most successful schools over the previous five years of these annual Awards.
