The world’s largest design award, the A’ Design Award promotes good design practices and principles from international designers, artists, architects, makers, brands and businesses across a diverse set of creative disciplines. And those who enter their work into the competition can carry the pride of a nation by representing their country in the prestigious World Design Rankings.
Based on the number of designers that have been granted an A’ Design Award, the World Design Rankings have highlighted the countries of the participating designers since 2010; the year the list was first divulged. For this current edition, 114 countries are being represented, an increase of six from last year, with China, the U.S., Japan, Italy and Hong Kong leading the way. As countries are only represented by submissions, simply put, those with the most entrants have a higher chance of ranking well.
A system that provides data to economists and journalists, the World Design Rankings——said “to be to Design what Olympics is to Sports”——allocates scores for from the amount of Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Iron awards handed out.
Maybe you’re from a country already in good stead and can help keep them there? Or perhaps your country is lower down the list and you can help give them a boost? With over 100 categories to enter your work, the A’ Design Award most definitely covers your niche giving you the opportunity to get your works out into the world at large whilst doing something creatively warming for your homelands.
Submissions are put before an esteemed panel of judges of experienced academics, prominent press members and established professionals and winners get not only worldwide recognition, but a slew of benefits including (but not limited to) a 3D-printed trophy, annual yearbook, and an invitation to an esteemed gala-night celebration and crowning ceremony.
