Call For Entries Open for the 2018 A’ Design Awards

wave-inspired digital art by marta moretto

When the quirky pasta packaging by Nikita Konkin made its debut last year (see below), the designs quickly went viral. Using strands and shapes of the dry noodles, they doubled as “hair” for the women printed on the boxes. It’s a simple but ingenious idea—no wonder it was one of the winners in the A’ Design Awards and Competition!

Do you have an equally as charming creation? Now is the perfect time to share it with the world and submit it to win an international A’ Design Award. With 100 categories to choose from, you’re sure to find a field that suits your work, from graphics to furniture design to stationary. Each of the entries submitted is reviewed by an esteemed panel of 173 Jury Members that include people of the press, designers, and academics.

The deadline for the competition is rapidly approaching; you’ve got until September 30 to submit to the 2018 competition. Winners will be announced on April 15, 2018—and we’ll be eagerly awaiting the results. If you’re awarded the prestigious honor, you’ll receive an impressive prize pack that features, among many other things, a PR campaign and professional services to market and sell your work. In the meantime, check out some of the winners from 2016 – 2017 competition.

Deadline: September 30, 2017.
