A’ Design Award & Competition is one of the world's most diffused and prestigious international design accolades where entries are peer-reviewed and anonymously judged by a 50-person experienced jury panel. The A’ Design Award jury consists of outstanding scholars, prominent professionals and influential press members to ensure that the designs can be evaluated in an unbiased manner.

The A’ Design Accolades are organised in a wide range of creative fields to highlight the very best designs from all countries in all disciplines. Entries are accepted in over 100 design competition categories such as Industrial Design, Service Design, Spatial Design, Communication Design, Interaction Design and others.
