A uniquely practical competition feature is the comprehensive range of 100 A’ Awards categories, so you can position your entry in one or more tightly focused design areas, avoiding the problem of getting lost in an overly broad field. Some of the most popular categories include: Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware; Interior Space and Exhibition Design; Packaging; Architecture, Building and Structure; Graphics and Visual Communication; Digital and Electronic Devices; Lighting Products and Lighting Projects.

And the judging is scientific! A’ Awards was originally developed as part of a PhD project, based on analysis of 800 design competitions, with a judging method specifically designed to create value for participants. A’ Awards winners are determined through a rigorous peer-review process, with anonymous voting, and available jury notes. The jury comprises a 70-member international panel of respected designers, academics and members of the media, following strict evaluation guidelines.
