You've got just over a week to enter the world's largest design competition and potentially see your name up in lights, benefiting from all that comes from having your work recognised by an expert panel of judges.

Winners of the A' Design Award get a whole heap of perks – aside from being able to add "award-winning" to your CV, you'll also get a 3D-printed metal trophy in a luxury box; the annual yearbook in both digital and hardcopy versions; an award-winners manual; a free gala-night invitation for two people to the award ceremony; free participation and space allocation in the winners' exhibition (both online and physical), and publication of your work to 100+ magazines including Creative Boom.

Deadline for submission is 28 February and there are a wealth of different categories to consider including packaging design; graphics and visual communication; advertising, marketing and communication; photography and photo manipulation; movie, video and animation, and print and published media. Take a look at the full list here.

Entries will be judged by this year's panel of over 200 leading designers, academics and influential members of the press including Aleksandra Toborowicz from the Department of Graphic Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, graphic designer Guillermo Dufranc from Argentina, Japanese designer Masanori Eto and British designer Mark Turner.
