The search is on, as A’ Design Award seek submissions for the 2019—2020 edition of what is the world’s largest and most exhaustive design competition. Born out of a desire to recognise the very best designs and designed products—especially in a time where millions are launched each year—the A’ Design Award & Competition provides an ethical yet competitive platform for companies, designers and innovators across a huge range of disciplines; enabling each to showcase their works to an international audience, select members of the press, and an esteemed panel of judges.
As the submission period is now well and truly open, we announce this ‘Call for Submissions’ by reflecting on what this competition can do for its winners. From extensive PR, press release preparation and distribution; to inclusion in the Annual Yearbook, a stunning trophy, and winners certificate; or simply the pride of having your work included the world design rankings and esteemed jury feedback. Which is not to mention networking opportunities and your personal invite to the lauded Gala Night, where you and your designs will be publicly hailed. Is that enough reasons to be a part of this prestigious design award family?
Boasting some 100 main categories, and many more sub-categories, the A’ Design Award understands that design is difficult to define. Entrants should select a discipline that best matches their work … be that Packaging Design; Fashion and Travel Accessories Design; Lighting Products and Projects Design; or any of the more niche categories that can be found over here.
Previous winners have impressed a jury made up of 209 leading designers, prominent academics and influential press members, an exhaustive roll call of talent and in-the-knows that means your work will not only get in front of the very best, but the feedback they provide is invaluable in taking your designs to the next level.
If you’ve got the chops to enter, don’t delay, as the deadline for regular submissions is 30 September. Results will be announced to public 15 April, 2020, and we’ll be publishing a post around this date highlighting some of our favourite winners; so act today for the opportunity to be featured here on We Heart next year. In the meantime, we leave you with a selection of our favourite winning submissions to date.
