The fruity toilet paper rolls went viral worldwide and won an A’ Design Award! It may seem like a nutty idea, but designer Kazuaki Kawahara found a clever way to make these WC wrappers appealing and useful for Japanese companies who offer toilet rolls “to customers as a novelty gift to show their appreciation.”

It is your turn to show off your best creation—submit it to the 2016 A’ Design Awards and Competition, an international event highlighting excellence in 100 categories including packaging design, art, animation, fashion, and architecture.

The entries are reviewed by a panel of judges comprised of experienced academics, press members and design professionals. The winners are announced on April 15, 2017, and believe us, it is exciting to be recognized for innovation and hard work—we’ve already won two A’ Design platinum awards for web design.

When you win, your masterpiece will be printed on the pages of a special edition hardback, promoted in PR campaigns going out to prominent blogs and magazines, and showcased in exhibitions in Europe and Asia.

Deadline: September 30, 2016.
