For new and emerging designers, it’s not always easy to showcase your work to the world or obtain feedback from industry experts. The international design community is large and it can be hard to stand out. That’s where the A’ Design Awards & Competition can help. The contest is currently open for submissions through the deadline of February 28, 2022, so head over to learn more and submit your designs.
The A’ Design Awards & Competition has over 100 categories that you can submit under and win. There are even special categories, like the Good Industrial Design Award and the Good Architecture Design Award, which increases your chances of garnering an award. Besides a unique trophy, the winners receive inclusion in world design rankings, the rare opportunity to sell their winning design, receive extensive PR and publicity through design media outlets, and so much more. For even entering your project (which can be a concept, prototype, or finished product), you will receive a free preliminary check that will evaluate your project and how well it would perform in the competition. Unlike other awards, the A’ Design Awards follows a peer-review process with anonymous voting and evaluation of entries.
To help inspire your registration and submission, here are some of our favorite lighting designs from last year’s contest. Be sure to stay tuned when we announce the winning designs of this year’s competition on April 15, 2022!
