Commercial: Any commercial or industrial project can be submitted for this major price, where the winner will take home $2000 cash plus Marketing Exposure.
Residential: Any house or apartment project can be entered here, and the winning submission team or individual will earn $1000 plus Marketing Exposure.
Concept: This is where to submit an idea or concept that has not been realised yet – such as a drawing, graphic or sketch. The winning prize is $250 plus Marketing Exposure.
The program is, as always, joined by a respected panel of industry judges, this year helmed by Stephen Varady, of Stephen Varady Associates, Amanda Stanaway of Woods Bagot, and Indesign’s own, editor Sophia Watson.
