A’ Design Awards & Competition – Early Call for Entries

It can be hard for emerging designers and brands to break through the noise to get their designs seen and their stories heard. One sure way to do it is through the A’ Design Awards & Competition, a prestigious contest that gives winners a global platform for showcasing their design to the international design industry. The competition is currently open for early entries for the 2021-2022 edition with a deadline of June 30th, so don’t wait! Submit your designs today.

There are more than 100 categories that designers can submit under, including special categories like the Good Industrial Design Award and the Good Architecture Design Award. All participants will receive preliminary checks, which lets you know how well your design would preform in the competition, free of charge before paying the nomination fee. All you have to do is upload your project! For winners, the grand prize is quite extensive. In addition to receiving a unique trophy, the winners are included in world design rankings, given the opportunity to sell their winning design, receive extensive PR and publicity, featured in various design spotlight videos, and receive official certificates and badges. Even runner-ups receive benefits; learn more here.

Every year we are blown away by the winning designs, from categories like architecture and interiors to product design and fashion design. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with when winners are announced next year on May 1, 2022. Be sure to submit your design before the June 30th early submission deadline! In the meantime, we’re sharing some of our favorite designs from the 2020-2021 competition winners to get your creativity going.
