Artisan Evaluation Methodology

At the heart of the A' Handmade, Crafts and Artisan Design Award is our commitment to celebrating excellence in artisan design through a fair and transparent evaluation process. The cornerstone of our judging system is a diverse and expert jury panel, comprising established academics, leading design professionals, prominent journalists, and influential entrepreneurs. This eclectic mix ensures a rich variety of perspectives in evaluating the merits of each design. Prior to the main assessment, a preliminary jury diligently works with all entrants to standardize the presentation quality of their submissions. This critical step is designed to eliminate any presentation biases, ensuring that every nomination is judged solely on its design quality, creative and functional merits, and not on its presentation. Our blind peer-review process further reinforces this impartiality, where entries are evaluated anonymously, safeguarding against any undue influence from political affiliations or personal biases. Jurors are bound by a strict agreement to uphold fairness and integrity in their judgment, with their votes being meticulously analyzed for any anomalies. Our rigorous process involves the standardization and normalization of jury votes, followed by a sophisticated statistical ranking based on standard deviations. This method allows us to objectively evaluate the consistency of each design's reception among jurors, ensuring that those designs with uniformly high ratings are distinguished. Designs are then ranked according to these evaluations, from the most consistently acclaimed to the least, with adherence to our established award-level thresholds - platinum, gold, silver, bronze, and iron. This methodical approach not only ensures a meritocratic competition but also imbues our participants with confidence that their artisan designs are evaluated purely on their intrinsic qualities and merits.

Yes, you can submit as many designs as you like to the artisan category, with each design offering a new opportunity to win. When submitting multiple designs, you can benefit from significant savings in two ways. Firstly, product families or collections can be submitted as a single entry. This approach allows you to use the A' Design Award Winner logo for all products within the family, utilizing just a single nomination fee. Secondly, if you have multiple different artisan designs, you can avail of a discount by contacting our support team to request pricing for a multiple nomination package.

However, if your goal is to enhance your rankings, consider submitting artisan designs in the same family as distinct entries. When choosing this path, ensure that the presentations for each artisan design are significantly different from each other. This strategy not only increases your chances in the competition but also allows each design to be distinctly recognized and appreciated for its unique qualities.

Yes, you can submit the same craft to multiple categories if it fits the criteria for more than one. This approach can increase the visibility and recognition of your craft across different fields. However, each category submission requires a separate nomination process and fee. It is crucial to note that you cannot use the same exact presentation for each submission. Different key visuals and showcase images must be used for several important reasons.

Firstly, to ensure you are making an optimized entry. Different categories often require presentations tailored to highlight specific aspects of your design. A targeted presentation can more effectively showcase the strengths of your craft in the context of each category. Secondly, varied visuals can optimize for increased media pickup. Submitting the same design with different visuals offers a broader opportunity for journalists to feature your work, as it provides them with a range of angles and stories to cover.

Lastly, distinct presentations can be advantageous for the jury’s assessment process. Unique and category-specific presentations allow jurors to better appreciate the versatility and adaptability of your craft. Therefore, when making multiple entries of the same design, highly distinct and thoughtfully crafted presentations are recommended. This strategy not only enhances your chances for recognition in the competition but also maximizes your design's potential for media exposure and jury appreciation.
