The 2014–2015 A’ Design Award winners will get their award-winning work exhibited in Ireland, Italy, and Holland. The A’ Design Award and Competitions’ Gala-Night and Award Ceremony will be held in Lake Como, Italy. The glamorous black-tie event will bring press members, award-winning designers, and companies together.

Entries were carefully evaluated by a 70-person jury panel of established academics, prominent press members, creative design professionals, and entrepreneurs. The A’ Design Award and Competition 2014–2015 Edition was further endorsed by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), The International Federation of Interior Architects and Designers (IFI), and the International Council of Communication Design (ICOGRADA).
