You chose a creative path and work hard to make something special every day. You don't always get the chance to create something brilliant, but when you do – you should proudly shout about it.
But instead of keeping your little celebrations to yourself, why not try and get the wider recognition you deserve? The A' Design Awards is one of the world's biggest and most respected competitions, and if you win, you'll get some serious kudos.
The annual competition, which comes with some incredible prizes and career-boosting publicity, is easy to enter, and you've still got time. The last day for entries is 28 February 2020, so quick, enter your design to be in with a chance of winning.
Boost your reputation
Covering creatives in a range of professions across 200 countries, an A' Design Award is worth striving for. It's not just validating that you're great at your job; it can have serious benefits for building your creative career.
If you win, you'll get an award trophy and certificate, an invite to a gala night of celebrations at Italy's Lake Como, and inclusion in both an exhibition and a special edition, hardback yearbook.
But even better, you'll get an extra layer of credibility that will help promote yourself to clients in future; a concrete proof of your creative skills and expertise. And if that wasn't enough, you'll also be able to use an official Awards logo to feature on your business cards, websites and any other material you use to promote yourself.
All entries are evaluated by an expert jury of scholars, professionals and media members, and winners will be announced on Creative Boom on 15 April, along with many other blogs, websites and magazines around the world. Wouldn't it be great to be one of them?
