A’ Design Awards & Competition – Early Call for Entries

It’s that time of the year again. The A’ Design Awards & Competition is open for submissions for the 2020-2021 edition! Winners will be announced next year on April 15, 2021 but you can get ahead by submitting your design early and receiving a free preliminary evaluation of your design. The deadline for early submission is June 30, 2020.

There are more than 100 different categories of design awards that you can enter your original designs under, and they can be concepts, prototypes, or products in its finished stage. Each design goes through a rigorous judging process with a juried panel of scholars, professionals, press members, and academics. Getting feedback on your design can be invaluable so this is an excellent opportunity to hear from some of the leading names in design.

There are plenty of reasons for entering the A’ Design Awards & Competition, a huge draw being that it’s a prestigious award that gives winners a platform for showcasing their design to an international design community. Winners are included in world design rankings and given the opportunity to sell their winning design. They’ll receive extensive PR and publicity, featured in various design spotlight videos, and receive official certificates and badges. Runner-ups and participants will also receive benefits; learn more here.

Every year the competition gets more and more fierce with incredible design submissions. Check out some of the winning designs from last year’s competition for the Lighting Products and Lighting Design categories:
