How to Use Nomination Tickets
Nomination tickets are used for waiving the processing fees during registrations. To learn more about them and how to use them please refer to this link. Please notice that other nomination packages are also available.

Disclaimer
Exclusive invitations are never sent by computer software, they are always sent by one of our team members who have seen your designs while checking design blogs, news or social media. If you have received an exclusive invitation, it means that one of our team members have seen your design, liked it and suggest it for exclusive invitation. It is important to know that invitations are not sent by jury members but rather our community managers who liked your design and such being invited does not indicate that your design was liked by a jury member; it was liked by someone who has no effect in voting process. If you wish to have an opinion about how the jury would think of your design, you can make a submission by uploading your design. Submissions are free. Your submission will be evaluated by the preliminary jury who will check your design and provide feedback before nomination. Nominating designs to A' Design Award is not free and being invited does not guarantee winning the award or even the runner-up status, however as we sent invitations to a select few designers who are already doing exceptionally good, you might expect an award. This page is especially created for transperency issues and can be freely shared with others.

Misuse & Refunds
If you misuse the system, for example purchase a professional or other nomination ticket with 40% discount (only digital nomination tickets can be bought for 40% discount) we will either refund you 75% of the fees or ask you to pay for the difference, furthermore for example if your purchase discounted entry tickets without being invited, we will cancel and refund the 75% of payment as explained in our refunds policy.


All prospective participants are eligible to receive a free of charge, confidential and obligation-free preliminary design score. Before nominating your design, it is best to learn how well your design would compete with other designs; to get your complimentary, obligation-free and confidential design score, all you need is: Upload Your Work. There is no catch. [Learn More]
