Winning awards can be great for your career. The industry recognition, the credibility, the raised profile – they can all help you get ahead.

That recognition will undoubtedly take you places. But you won't win anything if you don't put yourself forward for competitions, which is why you might want to consider this excellent opportunity from the A' Design Awards.

The annual contest is the world's largest design competition, reaching over 200 countries. You can register and enter online, but first – let's cover a bit more background on what to expect.

Who can enter?

There are more than 100 categories to enter including packaging design; graphics and visual communication design; computer graphics and 3D model design; movie and animation design; arts, crafts and ready-made design, and more. Check out the full list here.

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 2020.

Whatever your creative discipline, there's an award suitable for you. And if you win, think about the benefits of self-promotion and the future of your career.

What does winning mean?

There are many benefits to winning an A' Design Award. Winners get a bespoke trophy, the annual yearbook, a printed certificate in a metal frame, a free gala-night invitation for two people to the award ceremony, free participation and space allocation in the winners' exhibition, guaranteed publication through IDNN and DXGN Networks to 100+ magazines, automatic inclusion in the World Design Rankings, translation of your work into 20+ languages, and loads more.

The benefits to winners are too numerous to mention here. You can check out the full list of benefits at adesignaward.com.
