Victorian design innovators are encouraged to submit their work for the state’s leading showcase of design excellence, the 2015 Premier’s Design Awards.

Premier Daniel Andrews today called on Victoria’s design sector, and businesses that utilise design, to enter the Awards and have the chance to showcase their designs and projects to a national and international audience.

Launched in 2004, the Premier’s Design Awards celebrate the best in local design and aim to help businesses and the community understand the role that design plays in everyday life, making products and services ranging from the everyday to the extraordinary.

The Premier’s Design Awards take in the broad scope of Victoria’s design sector, accepting entries across six categories:

  • Architectural Design
  • Service Design
  • Industrial and Product Design
  • Communication Design
  • Digital Design
  • Design Strategy

Entries will be judged by a panel of national and international design experts, chaired by renowned Victorian designer Ken Cato, AO.

In 2014, winners of the Premier’s Design Awards included The Commons, a sustainable residential development in Melbourne’s Brunswick; the Minbie baby bottle teat; and Museum Victoria’s Think Ahead exhibition at Scienceworks.

Applications to the Premier’s Design Awards close Friday 21 August. Full details of the awards and entry process is available at Link
