Industry-first Designers Australia Awards, backed by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA), identify Australia’s preeminent designers and studios, calling attention to the individual/s and their design processes as much as the outcome. 

According to the DIA, the Designers Australia Awards differ in their categories and criteria from other awards.

Reflecting a trend toward multi-disciplinary approaches and problem-solving, they recognise the most nuanced design thinking applied across the categories ‘Place’, ‘Use’, ‘Interact’, and dissolve the traditional silos.

Award of Merit Celebrations to honour the shortlisted entries and Awards of Merit recipients will be held on 31 August at 6pm at Brickworks Studios in Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
