Taipei, May 15 (CNA) The selection process for the ninth President's Cultural Awards began Monday and will run through July 15, the organizer said.

This year's awards are divided into five categories -- cultural endeavor, humanitarian contribution, youth creativity, indigenous hope and social reform -- according to the General Association of Chinese Culture.

The trophies are designed by renowned album cover designer and four-time Grammy Award nominee Xiao Qing-yang (蕭青陽), the association said.

The winners, who will be announced in October, will receive their awards from President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) in a ceremony held the following month, it said.

Vice President Chen Chien-jen (陳建仁) said the purpose of the awards is to highlight Taiwanese values and set up Taiwanese models.

He expressed the hope that the new arrangements this year, including the award categories and trophy design, will give the awards a refreshed look.
