Design Rankings Inclusion

Home > Winner's Pack > Rankings Inclusion
This page provides an overview of the two ranking systems incorporated to A' Design Award & Competition

Design Rankings
A' Design Award and Competition manages two ranking lists. The first list is called the Designer Rankings and all A' Design Award winners and runner-ups are included. The second list is called World Design Rankings which includes only winners. Both lists provide further visibility and publicity to A' Design Award winners.

Designer Rankings
Designer Rankings system ranks all the designers that have been granted with the A' Design Award, but also counts the runner-up status designs as single points. Designers are further granted 2 to 6 additional points for each award they have won. Designers with the highest score are displayed first; i.e. designers are ranked based on the award status points. Within this perspective, winning a Platinum A' Design Award could be considered equal to winning three A' (Iron) Design Awards. The listing includes all years; therefore it is usually observed that even the top designers' positions fluctuate yearly. Winners usually share their information regarding the rankings through press releases and announcements. A' Design Award and Competition also makes a distinct press release and campaign each year to announce the designer rankings, and to promote the highest ranking designers. The aim of the Designer Rankings is to spur competition among participants and to award the highest ranking winners once again by celebrating them with a different title. Further information could be found and the updated rankings could be observed at designerrankings.com

World Design Rankings
WorldDesignRankings.com ranks all the countries based on the number of designers that have been granted with the A' Design Award. The displayed rankings are based on the aggregated scores of participants between all competition years. A’ Design Award & Competition provides a heat map of countries on the world map, and a special distinct press release for the updated world design rankings each year. For World Design Rankings, each winner gets the following points: Platinum A’ Design Award 6 Points, Golden A’ Design Award 5 Points, Silver A’ Design Award 4 Points, Bronze A’ Design Award 3 Points and Iron A’ Design Award 2 Points. Runner-Ups not included. World Design Rankings are usually featured in the media, and works great as a communication tool. Many winners do announce their contributions to the rankings through press releases or mentions. A’ Design Award & Competition makes a distinct press release for World Design Rankings each year and a communication campaign is run at different media to highlight the importance of the rankings. The aim of the World Design Rankings is to foster competition among countries, and to create further awareness for design. Further information could be found and the updated world design rankings could be observed at worlddesignrankings.com

Best Designers
Another platform where winners are displayed are called the "Best Designers", this platform is more or less equal to designer rankings platform, except that winner designers are displayed with their profile photos, together with a link to their profile at A' Design Awards. Inclusion is automated for all winners. Further information could be found and the updated rankings could be observed at bestdesigners.org

How to Get Listed in the Rankings
All winners are automatically placed in the both the designer rankings and world design rankings provided that their profile information is correctly filled. If a winner does not show-up on rankings they are advised to fill their profile completely.
