the A’ design award and competition aims to acknowledge the achievements of creatives of varying disciplines. its main objective is to promote the practice and work of the awarded participants–from architects, designers, engineers, studios and companies–providing publicity for them, as well as connecting them with key players of the industry, to further the development of their ideas, no matter what stage of development they are at (prototype, or finished). while realized projects get published and introduced to new markets, the organization assists recognized individuals whose products are still in the concept phase by helping them get in contact with business people and manufacturers who could potentially bring their designs to fruition.

 

the title of an A’ design award winner is a mark of excellence in design, recognized on an international level, drawing the attention of related professionals. all submitted projects are evaluated through a blind jury process, offering a fair, ethical and competitive platform for companies, designers and innovators to present their concepts to a global audience. the A’ design award and competition is divided into four major headings, with a number of sub categories (full listing here) in order that all proposals are reviewed under fair circumstances, alongside similarly themed initiatives.

each A’ design award winner is presented with a 3D printed stainless steel trophy

 

 

the A’ design award aims to push high quality design. outside of earning the title of being an A’ design award winner, and receiving a special 3D printed stainless steel trophy (gold & platinum awards are electroplated in gold color), each successful project is supported by an extensive PR campaign, which includes press release preparation and a distribution service. this is accompanied by a press kit creator, in which the association compiles a complete package for the winner to mail out to potential clients and interested media outlets which includes their photo, professional images of their design, product portfolio and interview, to list a few of the benefits. an added bonus is a yearbook publication which lists all of the annual winners, and documentation of the A’ design award gala night and exhibition.

 

the A’ design award is currently accepting applications. the deadline for this year is september 30th, 2013.
