Meet the Jury

The process of determining the winners of this year’s AZ Awards — the 10th annual — was a unique one for us. In March, when the world was grappling with the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, our international jury of leading designers met online for the first time in the history of the program. Together they selected the winners in 20 categories, their choices honouring some of the world’s most thought-provoking and inspiring work. Distilling it all to come up with individual victors was a tough job, made all the more challenging by having to confer remotely. But they did it admirably: Now more than ever, the projects that populate the following pages shed light on how design can truly create a better place for us all, physically and otherwise.
