With entries coming to a close on 3 May 2010, it is time for designers to submit their designs for the annual design program.
Launch Pad is an important and unique Australian initiative focusing on the support and development of Australian product design.
Through the Launch Pad program and exhibition, the local and international design community nurtures and celebrates original, authentic and innovative emerging Australian design, by supporting and cultivating the careers of those product designers involved.
The depth and breadth of Launch Pad goes far beyond its annual exhibition of prototypes.
The expertly curated Launch Pad program of events also promotes real relationships between people, ideas and products in design.
Held in conjunction with Saturday in Design, Launch Pad is continually evolving, using ongoing feedback from both finalists and the design community to develop into the program it is today.
Now in its sixth year of operation, Launch Pad has become much more than an exhibition of prototypes.
The full program of events also involves an afternoon of mentoring, where each finalist and their product undergoes a constructive critique session with an esteemed panel of local judges.
The program culminates in an evening function of networking with key industry figures, which also provides the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of stand-out finalists.
