The Design Files Awards TDF featured

The Design Files Awards - 2019

The debut edition of the TDF DESIGN AWARDS delivered a fresh take on the well accommodated Australian design awards roster at a superbly executed event at Federation Square on September 19.

The brainchild of TDF Founder Lucy Feagins, the awards were hilariously hosted by design-lover Tim Ross who deftly entertained the 300+ guests, and the platform looks set to be a mainstay on the annual design calendar!

The ADA® with TDF founder Lucy Feagins and designer Henry Wilson judged the emerging designer category, joining a stellar line up of 30 industry luminaries who served as the jury for more than 500 entries across 12 very diverse categories.

The $30,000 cash prize pool was made possible by the generosity of  Miele, Mercedes me, Cult, Eco Outdoor,  Jansz Tasmania, Brickworks, Phoenix, Nau, and Interflora, with winners also presented with beautifully handcrafted glass trophies created by Amanda Dziedzic (read more about them here).
