With a focus on intelligence and sustainability as recent industrial trends, the 25th IBDC’s theme is “Intelligence．Sustainability．Cool Lifestyle,” aiming to inspire innovative, intelligent, and sustainable bicycle designs.
The International Bicycle Design Competition (IBDC), established in 1996, is organized by the Cycling & Health Tech Industry R&D Center (CHC) with support from the Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs of R.O.C. (DOIT, MOEA). IBDC serves as a global platform for creative bicycle concepts and designs, fostering international collaboration among designers to elevate the standard of cycling design worldwide.
The award ceremony takes place at the Taipei Int’l Cycle Show, Asia’s largest cycling event, attracting thousands of visitors and industry professionals from over 30 countries. Winners receive cash prizes, and certificates, and their designs are showcased in print and digital formats during the show, providing valuable publicity. Additionally, winning entries may connect with bicycle manufacturers for potential production opportunities. Authorized use of the IBDC logo for promotion is granted to awardees, and they can also apply for the Golden Pin Concept Design Award 2024 with an automatic entry qualification if they receive a gold, silver, or bronze award in the 25th IBDC.
