Buildings and pavilions compete for the equivalent of the Olympics for the design industry, the A' Design Awards. Hurry and submit your design projects because the deadline is 28 February 2016.

The annual A' Design Awards was conceived as the official accolade which charts innovation in the prolific architecture and design industries while placing the creators into the spotlight. Make sure to register your account today to submit your entry to compete for the A' Design Awards.

The contest includes a broad range of general to specific categories – 100 to be exact – with the following as a sampling: 'Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design', 'Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design', 'Interior Space and Exhibition Design', 'Textile, Fabric, Textures, Patterns and Cloth Design', '3D Printed Forms and Products' and 'Architecture, Building and Structure Design'. If none of these are your cup of tea, a neutral category will classify even the most hypercreative works. Comprised of a sampling of professionals from creative fields, academia and press outlets, an international jury follows the principles and strict selection guidelines set forth by the A' Design Awards committee. Gather more detailed information about the awards here.
