The A' Design Awards invites you to tell the world why you deserve to be recognised

Previous winner: Anemone Sofa by Yi-Xuan Lee for Weimar Design Ltd – Gold A' Design Award

Are you a designer, innovator or brand worthy of attention? Have you created something recently that you're especially proud of? The A' Design Awards is an annual competition that invites you to submit your work with the chance to be internationally recognised, reaching nearly two million people worldwide.

Winners 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 and Good Architecture Design to Good Communication Design and Good Product Design, and there are 100 of them to choose from, so there's something to suit every creative discipline.

Previous winning projects have included the incredible "Anemone Sofa" by Yi Xuan Lee for Weimar Design (as pictured above) and a stunning flowing dress from Traces Womenswear Collection by Rong Zhang. We've taken the liberty to share some of these past winners below.

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.

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). To find out more about the A' Design Awards, visit whatisadesignaward.com.
