World Design Rankings is a method that, in the case of the A’ Design Award and Competition, highlights and positions countries according to the number of designers that have historically won the award. Simply put, by entering the competition, you could directly influence the status and repute of your home country.
For the 2020—2021 edition, 108 countries are represented, with the top five positions on the World Design Rankings going to China, USA, Japan, Italy and Hong Kong. Scores are calculated based on the number of Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron Design Awards won, and China lead the way with a whopping 2,272 Awards and Score of 8,201, compared to second place USA with 1,038 Awards and a Score of 3,791.
All these awards have been presented to designers representing a diverse range of disciplines; the A’ Design Award & Competition boasting a huge amount of categories and sub-categories for designers, innovators and companies to enter and showcase their works. Appraised by a panel of judges, scholars, professionals and press, you’re guaranteed honest and constructive feedback.
