Organizing a Fully Custom Design Competition
Do you want to promote your company in a unique and different way? Then run a new design competition hosted and organized by A'Design Award and Competitions. We will setup a unique domain and design a special website for you and will run your design competition at this unique website. You will have access to additional channels and people that are not available in your industry You can reach and engage with innovators and the designers who could offer a range of attractive incentives that your inner circle can't. You can find people who are normally unwilling to communicate directly with your industry and you will for sure reach fresh ideas, creative minds and out-of-the-box designs for your needs. Most of all, organizing a design competition creates positive impact and relationship between you and your current and future clients. Learn about benefits here.

How much does it Costs?
Organizing a design competition costs around 15.000 € to 30.000 € + IVA. Out of this cost, we are going to make a huge advertisement campaign that would have an equavalent value of 20.000 €'s this is only possible thanks to our extensive database of designers, artists and innovators. The Award prize has a minimum, but it can be further increased and will be determined together with A'Design Award Organization and Your Company, the award depends on a number of factors such as: Your Brand Identity (the more famous your brand is, the less compensation and incentives you might need to supply), Your Sector (Some industrial sectors are interesting, yet others might be not as interesting for designers), in addition to a monetary prize it is possible to set up alternative incentives such as a gift package of products or a constant percentage (between 3%-5%) from the income of the sales of products, or advertising the designers name. The incentives cannot be less then 2.500 € or equavalent worth.

Are you low on Budget?
• Organize a custom design competition that will run at A' Design Award and Competitions webpage.
• If you wish to organize a competition as a sub-event, check expo editions.
• To boost your own design award and competition learn about The Grand Award Prize.

How Will My Competition Look Like?
Each design competition we organize will have its very own website and unique domain name, we will also do the website design in addition to flyers, posters and banners. This website is indeed an advanced community web-site where users (designers) can register themselves, create profile pages with photos, upload designs, search for other designers, comment on others designs and profiles, submit videos etc, the jury will have the ability to vote designs online, optionally competitions can be open for public voting, these websites will use the technology provided by A' Design Award and Competition and the design competition website for your company will be fully customized to match your brand identity and values.
