Winners of the A’ Design Award are invited to attend the glamorous gala-night and award ceremony in Italy, where they are called to the stage to collect their trophies and award certificates; they are also provided space to take part in the ‘Best Designs of the Year’ exhibition to showcase their works, and are entitled to receive the ‘A’ Design Prize’.
A comprehensive winner’s kit given to everyone who received an A’ Design Competition Award, the ‘A’ Design Prize’ helps winners disseminate their news to the wider international audience; the Prize includes PR and marketing services such as translation of the award-winning work into several different languages. The Prize also helps competition winners prepare and distribute press releases, gives them a lifetime license to use an ‘award winner’ logo, and will help them create a campaign to communicate their awarded work to international members of the media.
