The Design Tasmania Awards are some of the longest-standing and most prestigious awards in the state and have recognised and promoted excellence in design and innovation for the past 10 years. The Awards continue to demonstrate the important contribution design makes to our lives by showcasing the best new products created in 2016/17.
The Awards provide a platform for emerging, established and professional designers, and act to inspire creative and sophisticated ideas. Designers are encouraged to use a broad range of industries and materials to produce works of a commercial nature, which can then be promoted through our retail networks.
In celebration of our 10th year, Design Tasmania has extended the prize offered to include professional mentoring and business development with our long-standing sponsor Clemenger Tasmania. The delivery of The Awards is made possible with considerable ongoing sponsorship from our key supporters: Hawthorn Football club, Specialty Veneers, Foot & Playsted, Henry Jones Design, and Forestry Tasmania as our foundation sponsor.
