Introduction to Grand Award Prize
Did you know that competitions compete more for attracting participants than participants competing in a competition aiming to win a prize? Every year, there are over hundred thousand creative competitions organized worldwide annually (including regional awards, online contest, international accolades, government accolades and international competitions in verticals such as design, innovation, engineering and idea generation). As a result of this intense competition among competitions themselves, prospective participants are now facing a wide choice of accolades to choose from and they have the possibility to compare and join the competitions that offer the most value. It is a pity but true, most participants will not read competition terms, especially if they are joining a competition for the first time; this means even if you are a great organizer who has put reasonable effort to organize a prestigious competition with terms and agreements favoring the designers, it will be less likely to create an impact on the amount of work submitted to your event. Likewise getting great and prestigious patrons or sponsors does not proportionally increase the amount of entries, especially if you require significant amount of work from the entrants (i.e. if you wish to receive in-depth solutions); the patronages could attract better participants, more qualified or experienced talent but the number of participants or works would not be increased significantly this way. Likewise, having a great jury also helps but only for attracting experienced designers; if you are organizing a competition that targets the general population, the jury will not be an effective way to get more entries. The most statistically significant aspect for increasing the number of entrants to a competition that targets creative talents (apart from the reach / i.e. competition popularity) is the award prizes; i.e. what you offer as an organizer to the prospective winners. The Grand Award Prize is a special list of items and services offered by A’ Design Award & Competition that you can add and implement to your competition so that you would get more entries and attract more experienced designers.

Who is The Grand Award Prize for?
The Grand Award Prize is designed for competition organizers who wish to attract a higher number of participants through improving their award offering and incentives. It could be purchased and integrated to any design, idea, innovation or engineering competition without any restrictions. The Grand Award Prize is a booster for your competitions, contests, awards and accolades, helping you as an organizer, to receive more entries from more talents and could potentially increase the overall quality of entries by creating a further incentive for prospective entrants to come up with superior works. Since the award kit is extremely rich and fully comprehensive, it also adds a further layer of prestige and credibility to your competition. It is also great for organizers who might not have the time or resources to manage a design award organization completely, or for those who have time, integrating the Grand Award Prize can reduce costs and man-hour requirements.

Who uses The Grand Award Prize?
Design Associations, Companies, Trade-Fairs, Event-Organizers and Publications who would wish to organize creativity awards, competitions or accolades can use the Grand Award Prize. For Trade-Fair organizers, we also have a more complex offering called the “Expo Edition”.

Commercial Presentation : The Grand Award Prize
The Grand Award Prize, targeting other creative (design, innovation, engineering) competitions, contests and awards, is a B2B product offered by A’ Design Award & Competition. It is a list of items and services that would be listed as a part of your award prize which you would outsource to us; in simpler terms, your competition can also offer the items included in the A’ Design Prize to your participants. When integrated by creative competitions, contests or awards, the Grand Award Prize increases the value of your accolades and helps the organizers to attract better talents & more entrants since the Grand Award Prize creates a strong incentive for prospective participants to join the competition. In another way, Grand Award Prize, allows design competition organizers worldwide to outsource award benefits (prizes) that would be offered to your participants to A’ Design Awards. I.e. A’ Design Awards will manage further deliverables that you could offer to your participants such as Gala-Night participation, Yearbook Publication, Award Trophy, Award Winner Certificate and many others helping you save resources and time.

Since all of these items are organized, procured and managed by A’ Design Award & Competitions, you will also save time and man-hours, and can focus your energy and resources on improving further aspects of your competition such as additional PR or marketing to attract even more entries.
