It has been noted that this year was much harder then previous years due to increased competition by increased quality and quantity of works. Entries were carefully evaluated by an internationally influential 70-person jury panel of established academics, prominent press members, creative design professionals and entrepreneurs who devoted great care and attention to details while voting for each entry and award category. The A’ Design Award and Competition 2014-2015 Edition was further endorsed by ICSID – International Council of Societies of Industrial Design, IFI – The International Federation of Interior Architects and Designers and ICOGRADA – International Council of Communication Design which imposed several additional criteria during evaluation and voting. Furthermore a new normalized score mechanism was implemented which considered the juror votes not by their arithmetic average but rather by their standard deviations, all together it was much harder to strike a victory this year, but it is well worth the effort.
