“This award seeks to recognise and celebrate women who have made significant contributions to the industry.” Launching its new award, the Good Design Awards’ new Women in Design Award is aiming to address gender imbalances in the industry.
March 8th, 2019
Australia’s Good Design Awards has announced a new Women in Design Award, which will be offered as part of the 61st annual awards. The inaugural Women in Design Award seeks to celebrate the achievements of female designers across the industry, opening for nominations on International Women’s Day, Friday 8 March 2019.
Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO Good Design Australia says, “We are launching the Women in Design Award in response to the gender imbalance within leadership roles in the design industry. According to The American Institute of Graphic Arts, only 4-11 per cent of US senior leadership roles in design are held by women, despite the fact that half the industry is female. This award seeks to recognise and celebrate women who have made significant contributions to the industry and hopes to encourage a more diverse and equal representation within the industry and leadership roles in particular within design and the creative industries.”
The new Women in Design Award is open to Australian citizens or women working and living in Australia, as well as Australian women currently working overseas. Nominations for this new award will close on Friday 5 April 2019.
The 2019 program covers 10 design disciplines across more than 30 categories. This includes best new products and services on the market, excellence in architectural design, digital and communication design alongside the emerging areas of design strategy and design for social impact.
The awards will culminate in a ceremony taking place in Sydney on 11 July 2019.
