With the theme of “creative cultural design for a better life,” the expo launched the cultural and creative products design contest and solicited creative cultural products from all over the country.

The content of the contest covers two categories, namely creative handicrafts and cultural tourism products. Therefore, it is required to start with the design details, deeply explore the cultural connotation, reflect the cultural elements and the stories behind, and show the traditional culture with innovation, practicability, marketability, aesthetic beauty, and science and technology.

“Since the launch of the contest, wonderful ideas have been gathering and growing here with active responses from cultural and creative organizations, enterprises, and individuals throughout the country, such as Tibet, Xinjiang, Beijing, Chengdu, and Chongqing.” As a result, a total of 278 excellent works were longlisted, according to the relevant person in charge.

Among them, many are amazing innovative products, such as handmade flower syrup, transparent bookmarks, and hand-painted postcards.
