DENFAIR Sydney
Awards 2018

A vehicle for promoting and supporting authentic and considered products and contemporary art. The DENFAIR Sydney Awards will set a precedent in the acknowledgement of innovation, inspiration in contemporary design as well as recognising the creativity of local and international designers and brands.

Following the principles of DENFAIR Melbourne, the first Sydney edition of the DENFAIR Awards will provide the design community with the opportunity to continue to recognise original and considered design by celebrating today’s best and brightest designers.

The awards will be hosted in-house, are free to attend and all DENFAIR Sydney visitors are welcome to enjoy!
