#307: Please let us know what are the requirement to enter for the competition, do we need to pay anything?
It depends on who you are, how you join, when you join and why you join. Sorry for a complicated answer, but the reality is as follows: 1. The A' Design Award has many ways for free entry for young designers, start-ups, media members, academics etc. but this does not apply to companies, design professionals (people who earn money through their design services) large enterprises, big brands; we ask companies to make a payment in almost all situations. Search and browse our campaigns page or dates and fees page to find a link to free entry possibilities 2. Free entry is also possible if a jury member or design association or design publication provides you a free entry nomination ticket from their quota. 3. Free entry is possible if someone paid for you; such as a gift card for making a nomination (present an opportunity campagin). That being said, the design competition and award is not free, however if you check the design prize, you will understand why. The fees can be found from the Dates and Fees page, which is available as a link from all pages. Furthermore please do not be confused: We say that the registration is free; you create an account at adesignaward.com which lets you access to platforms and tools such as world design index. Second, we say that submission is free; i.e. you can upload a design to A' Design Award and a preliminary jury member checks it free of charge and gives you a free score. Then there is the nomination; i.e. the decision to push your design for award nomination, this step is not free, and requires a payment to be made (but as I said it could be bypassed if you have a nomination ticket).
