Want to get global recognition for your work? There's still time (well... just) to enter this year's A' Design Awards; an annual competition that gives you the chance to get your work recognised alongside some of the best designers and creatives across the planet.

With more than 100 categories, ranging from Communication Design to Product Design, it's easy to enter your best work and potentially gain that extra layer of credibility that can be crucial to attracting new clients. If you win an A' Design Award you'll be able to, for example, feature its official logo on your website and other promotional materials for life.

This year's deadline is 28 February, so there's still time to enter: just register online and follow the simple instructions.

Where does your country appear in the World Rankings?

The contest is open to everyone, everywhere. And in a bid to encourage creatives from all over the globe to enter, the organisers have just revealed its World Rankings, which lists the world's nations in order of how many A' Design Award they've won.

Take a look here and see how your country is doing. Do you feel its placing represents its contribution to the creative industries fairly? If not, then maybe that's a further reason to enter the contest: national pride!

In the meantime, to give you an idea of what you're aiming for, here's a selection of worthy winners from 2017.
