The annual City Design Awards provide recognition across the design spectrum and are open to design professionals, as well as those who commission design.
The awards are cross-disciplinary, and celebrate and honour the role of design and the skills of designers, while recognising all aspects of the design process, including product, digital, interiors, architecture, graphic, textile, events, fashion, advertising, food, experience, and publications.
One aspect that sets this awards program apart from others is its democratic voting system. Voting is open to both the design public and Australia’s own design peers, allowing everyone with an interest in design to participate and make their mark.
In 2014 the City Design Awards will also launch in London and New York.
