ASGA president Julie Rochester said with COVID forcing the rescheduling of the Awards dinner for the third time, the time to announce the winners was now.
“The awards are about highlighting and promoting excellence in the industry and we didn’t want to wait any longer. The winners have been provided with digital badges to promote the fact that they are 2020 Awards’ winners, but they won’t know how many awards they have won or whether they have won any of the Highly Commended Awards until the full details are announced at the prestigious Awards dinner in September. We are looking forward to the industry getting together to celebrate,” Rochester said.
“Whether you are a winner or not, attending the dinner will be a great networking opportunity and an opportunity to reflect on the creativity, innovation and determination behind the final products.”
FESPA Australia president Nigel Davies added that one of the many highlights of the awards is the People’s Choice Award, which will launch in August.
“The way this award works is all of the entries get listed on a dedicated ASGA/FESPA Awards Facebook page and everyone gets to vote for their favourite entry. The People’s Choice Award is a great way to raise your profile to customer and suppliers and to get work associates, friends and family involved, cheering and “liking” your project on and showing their support on the page,” he said.
The full details of the winning entries per category and the winners of the Highly Commended Awards are expected to be announced at the upcoming HP Awards For Excellence dinner on 28 September in Melbourne.
