About the jurors
The panel is composed of experts in design and related areas. Here we find designers, academics, design critics and journalists specialized in design and similar areas. They are carefully selected to ensure that there is a broad representation from different countries, cultures and design disciplines.
They are the ones who evaluate and qualify the projects submitted based on criteria such as innovation, functionality, aesthetics and sustainability. It should be noted that the A’ Design Awards and Competition has an anonymous jury system, which means that the jury members do not know the identity of the designers behind the projects they are evaluating. This assures that the projects are evaluated objectively and fairly, without bias or prejudice.
