For 2016 – 2017 there are 83 Jury Members in total, composed of design professionals, press members and academics. In addition please feel free to check the Jury criteria or check our call for jury members.

Grand Jury PanelGrand Jury Panel
The foundation of any good design award, in addition to fair evaluation and judging by an extensive methodology, is to have a strong and expert design competition jury which provides their invaluable knowledge base and insight to evaluate the submitted entries, creating benefit and value for participants by transferring their insights and ideas in form of votes, feedbacks and suggestions. Good design award jury panels shall be multidisciplinary and comprised of recognized but most importantly experienced international designers, professors, entrepreneurs, journalists and publishers who can truly validate and evaluate design using their wisdom, experience, specialization and technical knowledge. In a good design award, every design award jury member should follow a code of conduct or as we require sign a jury agreement and shall be excluded from taking part in the competition. In addition, to avoid conflicts of interest, the jurors may not be employees of the participating companies. Furthermore to create further value to participants, the A' Design Award and Competition has introduced during its foundation, for the first time in all design award and competitions, a prejudging procedure called preliminary evaluation and checking which helps participants to get insights about their work before they participate in the design competition finals.

Apply as Jury Member

Good to Know : When it comes to jury, size matters.
A larger jury panel means your work getting evaluated by more experts, but also reducing the power of any specific jurors' control over the outcome, furthermore additional number of jury members also mean that strong personal preferences and biases are balanced by the votes cast by the majority, making the process more fair and democratic. The higher the size of the jury, the better and more trustable its selection becomes because the average score for an entry gets more reliable when input from many different jury members who vote the entries on different perspectives and expertise are accounted for. Join A' Design Award if you wish to get your work evaluated by an international jury panel of design experts, press members, and professionals.

Why a bigger award jury is more fair only when the jury does not interact?
Statistics, namely for error reduction purposes: When jury members vote on entries without interacting with each other, the jury members cannot effect each others' votes. When each jury member vote is independent, the voting biases and evaluation errors is reduced in the aggregate level; the positive and negative voting biases and evaluation errors by individual jury members averages to zero as the sample size increases, the total average decision of the jury panel when each member votes independently and without being effected by another jury member, is almost devout of errors since when many judgements are averaged, the average of all judgements tends to be more accurate than any judgement by a person alone, and as the sample size of independently voting jury members increase the error is reduced more. However this reduction in error is limited to any common biases available within the voters, thus to have even more fair voting, a jury shall also be composed of different groups, from different countries and backgrounds. In this case the jury errors are reduced in two dimensions, and this is why the grand A' Design Award and Competition jury, composed of prominent press members, established academics, entrepreneurs and design professionals are asked to cast their votes independently from each other, using a special voting platform that was scientifically developed to reduce any personal attribution and evaluation errors during design voting by combining and averaging the votes of all jury members at aggregate level.

Entries to the A' Design Award & Competition are evaluated by an internationally influential grand jury panel of prominent academics, established design professionals and leading press members. Enter your works today to benefit from the complimentary Preliminary Evaluation and Checking Service.
