MESSAGE FROM PREMIER OF VICTORIA
Design transforms how we live, work and play.
The Victorian Premier’s Design Awards celebrate the best in new design and the role that design plays in our economy and society.
This sector currently generates more than $5 billion in annual revenue, while more than 85,000 Victorians are employed in design-related roles.
And the influence, and importance, of design is growing in our state by the day.
This year, the inaugural VCE Product Design Student Award underscores the
importance of design to Victoria’s future, while inspiring the next generation of designers, creators and innovators.
These awards are just one way we can back Victorian designers and ensure Victorian businesses reach new heights and new markets – today and in the future.
Congratulations to this year’s finalists and award winners, and thanks to the Victorian businesses and organisations that back and believe in design.
The Hon Daniel Andrews MP
Premier of Victoria
