If you want the chance to be recognised as one of the world's leading designers, innovators or brands, then you haven't got long to enter the A' Design Awards. Deadline to submit your work and enter the annual competition is 30 September 2018.

Not convinced? Winners get international creative praise, reaching two million people worldwide. Plus they receive seriously special treatment with a ton of publicity (you'll be featured on blogs and magazines like ours worldwide), an award trophy and certificate, a gala night of celebrations at Lake Como in Italy (with the chance to network with the best in the industry) and inclusion in an exhibition for all the winners. You'll even be included in a special edition, hardback yearbook of published works.

Of course, we don't need to remind you that awards are an excellent way to showcase your skills and expertise. They add that extra layer of credibility, proving to potential clients that you're worthy of their attention. Winning an A' Design Award also means you can add its logo to your website and marketing materials for life.

Every year projects that focus on innovation, technology, design and creativity secure an A' Design Award. Categories range from Good Industrial Design, Good Architecture Design and Good Communication Design to Good Product Design, Good Service Design and Good Fashion Design, and there are 100 of them to choose from, so there's something to suit every creative discipline. Check out the full range of categories to find out more.

If you want to get involved, you have to register online and follow the simple instructions. Entries will be judged by an international panel of notable scholars, leading professionals and members of the press.

As we've said, you've not got long to enter. Deadline is 30 September 2018 and winners will be announced on 15 April 2019 (watch this space, as we'll be sharing them on Creative Boom too).
