AGOTYA Awards 2018

The Design Institute of Australia will be announcing and exhibiting the winners of the DIA 2017/18 Australian Graduate of the Year Awards at DENFAIR’s 2018 Melbourne Event.

The AGOTYA awards are a national annual award competition run by the Design Institute of Australia for final year and newly graduated design students. Design award categories include Fashion & Textile, Industrial and Product Design, Interior Design and Interior Decoration, and Visual Communications.

All categories are keenly contested and state category winners are automatically entered in the national AGOTYA competition – an important industry initiative that has kick-started the careers of some of Australia’s best young designers.

Last years’ winner, Sarah Martin, has benefited greatly from seizing the opportunity saying, “The AGOTYA win certainly helped put me in touch with a number of industry people…” “Since then I have been working for the ‘Self-Titled’ design studio in Melbourne on diverse range of projects across branding, digital, way-finding and print, I am extremely grateful to have benefited from such a great competition like AGOTYA.”

DENFAIR is proud to be hosting and supporting the 2018 AGOTYA Awards, as part of our ongoing effort to nurture and build the profiles of talented emerging designers, furthering their pathways to commercial enterprises.

The 2017/2018 AGOTYA Awards will be held on Friday 15th June at DENFAIR Melbourne, click here to register for the event.
