Starting Out And Standing Out

The AGDA Design Awards recognise the best work in Australia across a wide range of disciplines each year. The Emerging Designer of the Year Award, which was introduced in 2019, recognises young designers who have already started to make their mark on the industry.

This webinar is your chance to hear from three of last year’s finalists as they take you through some of their projects entered in the Student Awards and their submission for Emerging Designer.

Be inspired by those before you, and maybe you could be AGDA’s next Emerging Designer of the Year.
