Emerging Designer of the Year

The award for the Emerging Designer of the Year is to recognise young designers making their mark on our industry. This is aimed at designers aged under 30, who may work within a large agency, or who own and operate their own studio, or who may even practice as an independent designer.

We're seeking nominations for individuals — either someone you know, or even a self-nomination — whose contribution to their professional practice is outstanding.

Once a nomination is received, the AGDA Awards team will contact that individual and invite them to submit an entry into the Emerging Designer category, showcasing up to 5 pieces of work, a short biography and an outline of additional referees, contributions and even personal work. 

Jurors will assess the quality of the work presented, the individual's impact upon the design industry (based on the biography, referees and extra curricular activies) and will select the winning entry from a shortlist of 5.

Images can be included to support the text but not as a replacement for the images of the work that need to be supplied as 3000 x 2250 PNG images as per other entry categories.
