This page describes the profile score and profile ranking mechanism for A' Design Award.

What is a Profile Score?
When you create a profile at A’ Design Award & Competition, you are asked to provide information about yourself as a designer, artists, architect, engineer or creator of the project. The information you provide for your profile at A’ Design Award & Competition is used to improve your press appearances for both traditional and online publications, is included in your press-kits, used to provide you additional services such as mediation, consultancy and communicated to media as well as used to improve the search engine visibility for your profile. In summary, the more information you provide, the more publicity and visibility we could provide for you. Thus to push participants complete their profile we created the “Profile Score” mechanism which creates incentives for you to complete your profile.

How does a high Profile Score help me?
Effect on platforms: For publicity and dissemination platforms such as the World Design Index, Design Legends, Best Designers list etc., a higher Profile Scores ensure your profile to be displayed before other entries with a lower profile score. Effect on designer rankings: A higher profile score could potentially increase your designer rankings, within the score range: For example if there are 5 designers with the same score, we rank designers with the same score based on their Profile Score. Please note that the Profile Score does not effect the overall ranking, but sub rankings when score of several designers are the same.
