Benefits of the Award

The producers of awarded products benefit in the following ways: 

Certificate of excellence

Each product recognized with the UNESCO Award is given a certificate. The certificate can be used as a promotional tool (for a specific product or product line only) to attest the quality and authenticity of a product. 


Training and capacity-building

UNESCO assists national and sub-regional partners in organizing workshops on product assessment, design and promotion for the producers of awarded products and programme applicants. 


Trade fairs and exhibitions

Producers have the opportunity to display the awarded product at annual exhibitions and fairs and will receive guidance about participating in international trade fairs. 


Communication and promotion 

Producers benefit from the communication and promotion campaign coordinated by UNESCO and its partners. Promotional materials, such as brochures and catalogues, will enhance the product visibility and acknowledgment. The Brochure and Folder are now available to download. 



All awarded products, together with producers’ information data, are listed on the UNESCO Bangkok website so that interested persons can directly communicate with producers. 


Intellectual property and copyrights 

Producers of awarded handicrafts are sensitized on the benefits of registering their products under intellectual property rights regimes.
