The reason why this competition has so many categories is due to the idea that we need to increase the value creation for all participants, not just individual or specific participants. Most design awards are advertised by spending a lot on advertising but limiting the categories, not to mention the advertising budget usually comes from the participants. By increasing the number of categories, A’ Design Awards and Competition can eliminate such costs, it’s an award that can be joined not only by a group of high-income salary designers but also design students.
During 2014-2015 competition, there were 70 jury members in total, composed of design professionals, press members and academics. The foundation of good design award is to have a strong and expert design competition jury that provides their knowledge base and insight to evaluate each submitted entry, giving benefit and value for each participant through their insights, suggestions, and feedbacks. The jury panels are coming from multidisciplinary and comprised of recognized but most importantly experienced international designers, professors, journalists, entrepreneurs, and publishers.
