It is one of the most influential international awards in the world. Similar to the Pritzker Prize, participants are not limited by nationality, ethnicity, religion, or geography, aiming to explore the top works of intelligence, imagination, and sense of responsibility demonstrated in various design fields.

The UK has a long history of design traditions. 19th century designer William Morris (1834-1896) was born in Waltherstow, England and founded the world's first design firm. He is a highly respected pioneer in design, contributing numerous distinctive and timeless classic designs to future generations, and is known as the "father of modern design". He encourages designers to provide truly valuable and good designs for society.
To this day, the design spirit of William Morris is highly sought after and admired by the industry. The organizing committee of the competition vigorously promotes and advocates for environmental protection, health, and avant-garde design concepts, pursuing the three core elements of art, culture, and nature, and showcasing the characteristics of the new era. For participants, winning this award signifies supreme lifelong achievement and honor, and is the ultimate goal pursued by designers.
