The Launch Pad program is heating up, with the announcement of the 2011 Judging Panel.
April 28th, 2011
Each year a panel of esteemed judges, comprised of local and international design professionals, comes together to review the Launch Pad entries.
Representing a broad spectrum of design specialties and areas of expertise, these judges apply their industry experience and professional know-how to select a list of Finalists, who will show their work in the Launch Pad Finalists’ Exhibition as part of Saturday in Design Sydney (19 – 20 August 2011).
With the wealth of talent and quality of work entered into Launch Pad every year, making the final selection is not always the easiest of jobs.
And so we would like to extend a warm welcome, and special thanks (in advance!), to our Launch Pad Judging Panel for 2011.
