As creatives, we’ve all crafted work that we’re proud of. We give it pride of place in our portfolio. We show our friends and family. We might even stick it on the wall of our office. But why stop there?
The A’ Design Awards is the world’s largest and most diffuse design competition, reaching over 200 countries each year. All entries are evaluated by an expert jury, including scholars, members of the press and well-known design professionals.
There are more than 100 categories to enter, including packaging design, graphic design, web design, 3D model design, movie and animation design, and arts and crafts design (see the full list of categories here). And winning can mean a serious boost to your career!
Benefits of winning
The winners, who will be announced on 15 April, will be published on this very website, as well as other blogs and magazines worldwide. If you’re among them, your work will be included in a special exhibition and a yearbook, and you’ll be able to feature the official Awards logo on your website, and other promotional media, for life.
You’ll also receive an award trophy and certificate, and an invitation to a gala night of celebrations at Lake Como in Italy, with all the top-level networking opportunities that entail. You can read the full benefits of winning here.
