2014 Nantong International Contemporary Craft competition which is organized by World Crafts Council AISBL (WCC),China Arts & Crafts Association(CACA) and Nantong State-owned Real Estate corporation Ltd. has been officially launched.

Our intention is to acknowledge the value of craft which has developed between familiarity and originality in the course of time and space, and to explore its various futures.

With this in mind, the forum intent to respond such philosophical question as "tradition and modern", "Aesthetics and function" , "content and form" and reveal the real level of modern and contemporary arts and crafts.
