Call for Entries: The 2018 A’ Design Awards

Hurricane Desktop Lighting Installation by Naai-Jung Shih

The spectacular 3D-printed “Hurricane” lamp, shown above, “creates a contrasting image of dynamics and statics, opacity and transparency, solid and void, and defined boundary and infinite reflectivity,” states product designer Naai-Jung Shih.

When the table lamp is turned on its indirect lighting displays the tempestuous storm, and when turned off, it still is a gorgeous sculptural piece. Good design is all about function-and-form and this project received an A’ Design Award, among many other. Take a look.

Now is your chance to submit your work to the 2018 A’ Design Awards and Competition. The international contest seeks to highlight the best of the best in 100 categories including arts, crafts, graphic design, 3D printing, fashion, architecture, film, and more.

To determine the winners, 83 jury members—comprising designers, press members and academics—will review entries. The winners are announced on April 15, 2018, with many prizes in store. Some of them will be included in the annual  hardback book, published in established magazines, and invited to the Gala-Night.

Deadline: February 28, 2018.
