Guangzhou-based International Creative Art & Design Academy, alongside the Guangzhou Education Bureau, has recently launched the second city-wide design competition for secondary school and university students. According to the organizers, the goal of the competition is to "provide a creative art and design platform for secondary school and university students in Guangdong, and to solidify and develop creative art and design education."

The competition's theme is "Old and New," and will be held from January to May 2014.The whole competition includes promotional presentations and seminars on preparing design works for submission, followed by both a preliminary competition and a final competition. The final competition will select several winners, while the grand champion will be offered a chance to take a short course at the University of Arts London.

The organizers hope the participants will be inspired by the theme to create works that both revisit the old and discover the new, fusing the past, present and future in their designs. This is a response to the Western creative art and design concept that the organizers strive to promote: design creatively through deep exploration; curious, open and critical thinking; and the use of different materials and methods with courage to take risks.

In addition to this year's contest, an exhibition will be held to showcase award-winning works from the first edition of this competition series. The first edition took place in 2012.
