This highly anticipated industry platform is an important destination for both the local and international design industry at the Decor + Design show in Melbourne. VIVID has already assisted over 700 designers with more than 1,000 products to kick-start their careers. Judged by a panel of prominent and respected industry figures, finalists will exhibit their design prototypes at the VIVID Awards Gallery.

Awards categories include Furniture Design, Lighting Design, Object Design, Concept Design, the ADA Award of Merit, and the VIVID 2017 Judges Choice Award. Judges include Jan Henderson – Inside Magazine, Anne-Maree Sargeant – AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE™, Dana Tomic Hughes – Yellowtrace and Jo Mawhinney – Living Edge Furniture.

As a participant in two VIVID competitions I can greatly recommend the benefits of putting your work out to be seen, and to see how it is received.
Not only is it a great platform to showcase your work in front of some very influential industry people, but it also gives you the opportunity to meet like-minded designers who are at a similar stage in their design careers.
