Each year, The Australian International Design Awards (AIDA) recognise top innovations from companies that differentiate their products and services through design.

Presented by Good Design Australia, it’s the country’s biggest design recognition program, encompassing products as diverse as cars, medical devices, cooking utensils, building tools, toys and furniture, all of which go in the running to receive the coveted Good Design or Design Award accolade.
