2017 Entries Open
DESIGN TASMANIA HAS THE FOCUS on design excellence, innovation and craftsmanship and the organisation has been supporting and promoting the design community for 40 years and this is the 10th year of the Tasmanian Design Award. MANY OF THE EARLY RECIPIENTS represent some of our best selling products within the retail space. This is a testament to good design and the relevance of the product in people’s lives. Many of the design community have entered the competition over the ten years, demonstrating the significance of the Award and the influence in designers professional careers.
THE AWARD CALLS for works that can be produced for a retail environment. It challenges design to consider a range of different end-users to go beyond materiality + function to engage the wonder and delight of the world and how they can make a difference to peoples lives. The Design Tasmania Awards are open to everyone and are an important part of Design Tasmania. One of the functions of the Award is to bring together the most talented of Tasmanian designers. THIS YEAR DESIGN TASMANIA are keen to offer an opportunity for the finalists to come together and learn from one another and hear from some of Tasmania’s most talented and successful creative directors at Clemenger Tasmania. The overall winner will be mentored over a 12 month period. OUR SPONSORS ARE an important part of the success of the Design Tasmania Award and this year the value of the combined offering is $10,000. 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.
