The following post is brought to you by A’ Design Award and Competition. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.

A’ Design Award & Competition is a well-respected annual design competition honoring the best in design, with winners chosen by a distinct jury of academics, professionals, and enterprise and focus group members. Besides having an enviable prize package, the competition aims at helping young designers and startups gain some much deserved recognition for their designs by helping them launch their product into production and make connections with the right business people in order to aid them with their ideas. The winner also gets this super awesome trophy!

Besides the brag-worthy trophy, they also provide a platform to help you sell your designs, limited edition prints of your designs to use in your print portfolios, as well as an invitation to their formal Gala Night. That’s not all – they’ll also help you put together a press kit and marketing tools which are incredibly important when you’re beginning a career in design.
