A’ Design Award and Competition features a design award methodology, which has been developed after analysis of over thousands of design awards and competitions. Unlike other design awards or competitions, for the first time, “Preliminary Scores” and feedbacks are provided to help designers or companies who are considering to take part in the competition, free of charge. The A’ Design Award & Competitions’ judging process takes several weeks since each and every entry is carefully considered. But more importantly, before entries are allowed to the competition, their presentations are checked dozens of times, and the jury casts their vote in an independent manner without having the chance to influence each other.
Entries will be judged by an international jury panel of academics, design professionals and press members. 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.

Please note that the deadline for submission is on February 28th. Results will be announced to public on April 15th when you may visit our website in order to find out the best designs of the competition.
