This sponsored post is brought to you by A’ Design Award and Competition. The international A’ Design Awards is a rigorously judged, highly respected annual competition that brings the winners’ work literally before the eyes of the design world. This is perhaps your single best opportunity to gain serious worldwide recognition for your design work. The competition is open to all design disciplines and levels of experience, and to projects in the concept, prototype and production phases, competing under 104 categories.

A uniquely research-driven program, the A’ Awards was originally developed as part of a PhD project, based on analysis of 800 design competitions. Every aspect has a designer-focused advantage. The extensive range of A’ Awards categories allows you to precisely position your entry in one or more tightly focused design areas.

A No Further Fees policy means all advantages to winners are included in the entry cost (unlike practically all other design awards that include many hidden fees for winners). Free pre-selection of each entry lets you know if your submission meets the minimum standards, and provides suggestions for improvement. The list goes on.

Building global awareness and business for each winner is the main goal of the A’ Awards, achieved through a carefully designed synergistic publicity program.
