Distinguished Designer Program

Home > Benefits > Distinguished Designer Program
This page explains the A' Design Awards' Distinguished Designer Program for Winners.

What is the Distinguished Designer Program?
To Honor the Winning Designers, A’ Design Award and Competitions have come up with the Distinguished Designer Program, which is a tiered program that bestows unique benefits at each level. The Distinguished Designer Program was designed to create a further organic link between the winners and the organization itself. Participation in the program is free and is life-long. 

Program Details
You need to be a either a jury member or winner of A’ Design Award and Competitions in order to be a member of the program but the applications are open to all. This paper is our initial draft of the program and we aim to add further benefits, membership levels, and new ways to earn and use points in the future. Your existing winnings and previous participations will also be converted into points. Further details are given at the bottom of this page.

Program Purpose
The purpose of the Distinguished Designer Program is to bestow further benefits to the participating A' Design Award Winners via further recognition, power, luxury, differentiation, club and networking benefits as described at Program Advantages.

Program Tiers
The Distinguished Designer Program has three tiers and an honorary title: Distinguished Designer as the fourth tier. Unlike any other program, this is a life-long program where your points never expire and the points are not earned by making nominations or spending money. You earn points by keeping us updated with your works and by partaking in our events. This is actually what gives the program its prestige over any other programs as your level does not depend on your spending or purchase of services.
