Hello and thanks again to everyone who entered the 2020 AGDA Design Awards.
Judging is now underway!
It’s been an unorthodox year for awards programs, and moving to 100% remote judging has given us the opportunity to approach things a little differently. We now have the largest ever jury in awards history, and have worked hard to bring together jurors from across ANZ to best represent our community. Specialists, Generalists, Educators, Strategists – familiar and fresh faces, coming from studios big and small. We still have a few more jurors to announce, and you can find them listed here.
We expect finalists will be announced in late October, and our Awards Ceremony / Winners Announcement in late November / early December. Nick Mount and his team are producing the Pinnacle and Distinction trophies for us this week.
Our awards team are watching the changes to each region’s social distancing rules, and are continuing to work on ideas for our Awards Ceremony. We know for certain that we’ll be holding a virtual ceremony this year. However we’re also keen to keep exploring options to combine this with hosting parties across the country. Bear with us! We’re hoping to confirm as soon as we can, and ideally in the next week or so.
