A’ Design Awards & Competition – Nominate Your Best Designs for Award Consideration


Summer’s just up and I’m sure your creative juices are flowing well. It’s time to take up yet another challenge aka the A’ Design Awards & Competition. This year’s call for entries is gives inspiration enough for you to know that you too can do it and be a winner! Some of the biggest rewards are the innumerable benefits and privileges that come your way, for example, free participation and exhibition space for winners, free sales listing at Salone Del Designer, free utilization of Design Mediator services and inclusion in BuySellDesign Network.


From about a hundred categories that you can apply to, Industrial Design, Automotive Design, Packaging, Product Design, Furniture Design and Lighting Design are what I can recommend. But hey, go through the entire list here before shortlisting your intent.

Once a winner, always a winner; this holds true for the A’ Design Awards & Competition. They take up the task of extensive PR, publicity and networking on behalf of the winners plus tools like exhibitions, yearbook, decorated certificates, world design rankings and elaborate gala night for networking, are also a part of the deal.


The entries are judged on a number of elements and an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members are appointed for the same. What I love about the judging process is that it’s very transparent and the feedback given to the participants is very valuable and authentic.

The deadline for regular submission is September 30, 2015 and the results will be announced on April 15, 2016 – right here on Yanko Design. Register here NOW!
