The Australian International Design Awards (AIDA) has announced its biggest year yet with the launch of additional categories
March 1st, 2013
Categories relating to home and commercial design include Architecture and Interiors, Hardware and Building, Housewares and Objects, Furniture and Lighting, Domestic Appliances and Consumer Electronics.
Entries are now open to the Australian International Design Awards (AIDA), an award which has been the launch-pad for many of Australia’s most famous and iconic designs over the last five decades – including the Hills Hoist, the Ute, the Cochlear Implant, the Artificial Heart and the Deapsea Challenger – which was used by Director, James Cameron to explore previously impossible depths of the ocean.
In 2013, the awards are set to be bigger than ever with new Architecture and Design categories and international judges, giving a new generation of organisations the opportunity to shine on the international stage.
“People often assess design based on visual appearance and functionality, however, we measure design based on the parameters of form, function, quality, safety and sustainability,” explains Managing Director of Good Design Australia and Chair of the AIDA, Brandon Gien.
Aligning with VIVID Sydney for the 2013 awards, the AIDA has put together a judging panel and forum of some of the world’s most respected product designers, including representatives from countries including Sweden and USA.
Submissions to the 2013 AIDA close on Thursday 28 March 2013, with winners announced on Thursday May 30, 2013.
