Universal Design Principles at Prime

Universal Design Principles are used at A Prime Design Awards to help laureates reach international audiences.

Albert Einstein once said, “to raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science”. Given this perspective the A' Design Award and Competition was founded using Universal Design Principles in a way to ignite creativity and imagination in all design fields at everywhere at everyone.
The A' Design Award and Competition follows Universal Design Principles, the eligibility being universal in sense it is first of all open to all types of design except for weapons and similar dangerous technologies, everything else is welcome under over hundred different design award categories ranging from industrial design to spatial design, from graphics design to service design.

The Universal Design Principles as followed by the A' Design Award requires the competition to be open to submissions of all types of design entries, therefore it is not just designers but all creative people could submit works including but not limited to innovators, entrepreneurs, pioneers, makers, artists, architects, engineers, researchers, scholars, and inventors.
The second part of the Universal Design Principle requires the submissions to be open to designs of all stages; concept designs, prototypes, mock-ups, working prototypes, functional works, proof of concepts, advanced prototypes, advanced concepts, realized works, products in market and other ideas of all stage are accepted to take part in the competition.

The third part of the Universal Design Principle requires the submissions to be open from every and each country as well as regions. Submissions from all continents, countries and regions are accepted but most importantly, the design competition presentation itself is available in a multitude of languages so that designer from all regions could actually discover and join the awards.
Fourth part of the Universal Design Principle focuses on the reach and dissemination of the accolade, unlike other design awards which only serve to English audience, the A' Design Award and Competition provides content in multiple languages, also translating awarded works to many other languages, even exotic ones occasionally.

Fifth part of the Universal Design Principle requires the A' Design Award and Competition to take part in activities and events in other countries, the A' Design Award gets involved in conferences, workshops as well as design or niche exhibitions in many countries, joining symposiums, trade shows, conventions and meetings to reach new audiences.
As a part of the Universal Design Principle, the A' Design Award and Competition publishes four rankings, the first ranking system is called the World Design Rankings. The World Design Rankings are published thanks to the fact that the A' Design Award is truly universal and that it gathers designers from all countries and regions throughout the world.

The World Design Rankings ranks the very best designers for each country. You could learn the best overall designer in your country, regardless of the design discipline. Furthermore, you could also learn which country is best in which design discipline, business insights section provides details and an overlook of the design situation in a country.
DAC – Design Award Classifications provides market specific rankings of designers, architects and companies. At the DAC – Design Award Classifications, you could learn the best designer in a specific design field, you could learn the best architects, you could learn the best companies with the best designs, regardless of the country of origin.

Designer Rankings website is an interesting platform that ranks the designers based on the overall number of design awards won globally, this ranking is independent from design disciplines and countries, making it highly unique, it is a ranking of the worlds' most creative people and companies regardless of who they are, the very best are ranked at top.
POPDES – Popular Designers website is quite different from the Designer Rankings, World Design Rankings or Design Classifications, unlike other systems which are merit based rankings that sorts the designers based on the number of awards won, the POPDES – Popular Designers platform lists the most famous designers based on press interests as well as designer profile views.
While rankings are a good way to spur creativity and push designers forward, the A' Design Award and Competition undertakes many other initiatives to support design discipline as well as its laureates. One of these initiatives is the multilingual public relations campaigns that are undertaken at many countries simultaneously.

The Design International website, as presented by the A' Design Award provides an index of design news as well as the A' Design Award and Competition presentation in many languages. This allows the news about award winners to reach new prospects, new audiences and people, making the competition international for its reach and audience.
A' Design Award and Competition, thanks to following its Universal Design Principles has quickly become the World's most international design accolade within a very short period of time. To ensure market penetration in each and every country, the competition did not only advertise its winners or call for entries but took active role by pushing developed as well as underdeveloped regions to join.
Philanthropic activities undertaken by the A' Design Competition include sponsorship of young but excellent designers from all countries, the Design Ambassador program is one of the many ways to take part in the competition, making it open to further audiences that would otherwise not be able to afford the nomination fees.
Preliminary Check and Evaluation Service, which is provided to everyone who submits a design is a great tool for designers worldwide, helping them understand the quality of their designs before they make a nomination and pay any nomination fees. Furthermore each participant is able to access valuable documents repository for design.
Two documents in the A' Design Award documents repository is especially useful for designers, these are the presentation guidelines which explains how to prepare the perfect design presentation, as well as the editorial guidelines which explains how to explain a design the perfect way. Furthermore, there is a manual for winners, but that one is reserved for laureates.
The Universal Design Principles followed by the A' Design Award require the submitted works to create benefit to society, pushing its advancement with new technological and design breakthroughs. The design competition is especially open for designs that are aimed to reach a big portion of the population, but also warmly welcomes designs that solve unique problems to previously unaddressed questions and situations.

Perhaps the most important aspect is the fact that the Universal Design Principles were integrated to the very foundation of the A' Design Award and Competition. It is no wonder that today, the A' Design Award and Competition has become the World's most international design accolade that runs and manages the famous World Design Rankings.
