From the Series
The A’ Design Award Competition, one of the world’s largest annual juried design competitions, is an international platform that shines a spotlight on excellent work by designers, companies and innovators from diverse disciplines across the globe.
While the early call for entries has closed, the standard deadline to enter is 30 September 2014 with a further late application deadline of 28 February 2015.
See this year's early winners in various categories in our gallery above.
The competition promotes the winning designs to an impressively broad audience, encompassing an extensive range of categories for every single sector of the industry. Its spin-off broadcasting and media channels catch the attention of the design press, critics, distributors and buyers. Learn more about the benefits here.
A handy winner’s kit includes everything you need to celebrate, including the 3D Printed Metal A' Design Award trophy and a digital and hardcopy annual yearbook. Winners also attend the gala award ceremony in Italy, which is a great opportunity to network with other designers and members of the press and trade.
Winners also get to display their work in exhibitions in three countries and in an online gallery.
The final roster of winners will be published on designindaba.com on 15 April 2015. So check back then to see what designs came top of their league – from furniture, fashion and digital interaction design, to architecture, packaging and retail interiors.
