A’ Design Awards & Competition 2016 Winners

Another amazing year of nominations and submissions, but the A’ Design Award & Competition winners have been announced!


A’ Design Award & Competition is the largest annual juried design competition for designers, architects, and design brands worldwide. Providing publicity, recognition and accolades for their designs, A’ Design Award strives to reward designers for their hard work.

This year, there are 1278 award winners from 88 countries in 93 different design disciplines, from architecture to interior design, furniture and lighting and more. See all the categories here. The entries are carefully reviewed and evaluated by an international and prestigious jury panel of established academics, media professionals, creatives and entrepreneurs.



The winners will have their work physically exhibited, an invitation to the glamorous gala-night and award ceremony in Italy. In addition to these events, winners will also get a 3D-printed trophy, a framed certificate, yearbook of the best designs, plus lots of international press, PR/marketing services, and networking opportunities.

Take a look at our favorite 2015-16 home & architecture winners:
