Participating in design competitions is a great way to get exposure for your work. Of course, I’m not talking about the spec work kind of competitions, but the awards that give you a platform to show off your professional design work. A’ Design Awards is one of these places where you can get exposure and improve your design studio’s branding.

A’ Design Award & Competition is the world’s leading international annual juried competition for design. The A’ Design Accolades are organized in a wide range of creative fields to highlight the very best designers from all countries in all disciplines. Entries to the competition are peer-reviewed and anonymously judged by an influential jury panel of experienced academics, prominent press members and established professionals.

This type of participation to awards should be a part of any company’s branding strategy, as did these 10 companies and designers that are featured in the article.
