Mike Spirkovski, Chair of AWARD, said: “Running for 40 years, the AWARD Awards has become a huge annual celebration and a respected benchmark for creative excellence in our region. Each year, we rely on the support of our industry’s top talent to help identify and set those standards, and as anyone who has judged in the AWARD Awards before will understand, it is no quick and easy task - we delivered a total of 290 pencils last year alone. I would therefore like to thank our impressive list of judges in advance, for what will be a rigorous few weeks ahead.” 

The annual AWARD Awards presentation will take place on Thursday 11 April 2019 at the Australian Technology Park.
