The comprehensive A’ Design Award Winners Kit is, of course, one of the main reason many register and compete in the A’ Design Award and Competition. Just some of the benefits this award package includes are: participation in an exhibition at the Museum of Outstanding Design (MOOD), inclusion in an annual hardcover yearbook, publicity by way of tools such as a press release and marketing, inclusion in the World Design Rankings, an invitation to the A’ Design Award Gala-Night in Como, Italy, an award trophy (check it out), feedback notes from the jury, press release translation into more than 20 languages, the Prime Design Mark, and participation in a extensive PR campaign. However, many say that the feedback from experienced professionals alone is the most valuable prize. This strong jury brings knowledge and insight to each category, evaluating them expertly and providing valuable feedback experience from a panel of from industry leaders, academics and prestigious journalists.

The late deadline for submission is February 28, 2020. The winners will be released to the public on April 15th, 2020. To see more information about the deadlines go here.
