One of our favorite ways to discover emerging designers and their unique ideas is through the A’ Design Award & Competition. Every year, the contest showcases new talents from all over the world, sharing designs we haven’t seen elsewhere. The 2023-2034 edition is currently open for applications, but you’ll have to hurry, as the competition is already in its late application phase. Submissions are accepted until February 28, 2024 and the winners will be announced April 15, 2024.
Unlike other design competitions, the A’ Design Award & Competition has many categories that designers can submit their projects under. There are over 100 categories, including special design categories like the Good Architecture Design Award and the Good Product Design Award. During the judging process, you’ll receive valuable feedback from industry experts and media on your design, whether it’s a concept, prototype, or finished product. The winners receive an extensive prize package, including a unique trophy, inclusion in world design rankings, extensive PR and publicity in design media outlets, and even the option to sell their winning design.
Feeling inspired to enter the competition? The deadline is fast approaching, so be sure to apply today!
