Judging for the A’ Awards is rigorous, professional and impartial, with a methodology based on research into hundreds of design competitions. An international panel of 50 jurors comprises designers, scholars, media members, and industry experts, and is refreshed with new members every year. And the A’ Awards is self-funding (through entry fees), to avoid any hint of outside financial influence. The details are clearly presented in A’ Awards Jury and A’ Awards Methodology
