A’ Design Award (A-Prime Design Award) was developed in 2010 as a response to the existing design competitions which were undeveloped in terms of methodology. These competitions were, in general, profit-oriented and did provide no feedbacks other than you win/you lost. Furthermore, their scoring was not standardized which made it difficult for people to track their achievements.
Entries are open for architects and designers to submit projects for the A’ Design Award and Competition.
Deadline for submission is February 28th. Results will be announced to public on April 15th.

Grand Jury Panel
The foundation of any good design award, in addition to fair evaluation and judging by an extensive methodology, is to have a strong and expert design competition jury which provides their invaluable knowledge base and insight to evaluate the submitted entries, creating benefit and value for participants by transferring their insights and ideas in form of votes, feedbacks and suggestions. Entries will be judged by an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members following a peer-review process with anonymous voting and evaluation. Good design award jury panels shall be multidisciplinary and comprised of recognized but most importantly experienced international designers, professors, entrepreneurs, journalists and publishers who can truly validate and evaluate design using their wisdom, experience, specialization and technical knowledge.
In a good design award, every design award jury member should follow a code of conduct or as we require sign a jury agreement and shall be excluded from taking part in the competition. In addition, to avoid conflicts of interest, the jurors may not be employees of the participating companies. Furthermore to create further value to participants, the A’ Design Award and Competition has introduced during its foundation, for the first time in all design award and competitions, a prejudging procedure called preliminary evaluation and checking which helps participants to get insights about their work before they participate in the design competition finals.
