A’ Design Awards & Competition – Call for Submissions

Calling all designers! The A’ Design Awards & Competition is still currently open for submissions, but hurry! The deadline for regular submissions is September 30, 2020. Winners will be announced on April 15, 2021 and we’ll be sure to share our favorites here.

This is an award that has immense benefits. Upon entering the A’ Design Award & Competition, you’ll receive a preliminary evaluation of your design, so you already have an incentive to just enter. All entries are peer-reviewed and juried by an international panel of academics, design professionals and press members. There are over 100+ categories of design that you can enter under, including specialized design awards like the Good Industrial Design, the Good Architecture Design, and the Good Fashion Design awards. If your design is selected as a winner, you’ll receive quite the prize package, including inclusion in world design rankings, a trophy (pictured below) and certificate, a gala night invitation with other winners and design members, and so much more.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite designs from last year’s competition to help kick-start your own submission!
