Day One

Welcome to Day One of the Good Design Awards Week! 

We’re kicking the week off by announcing the Good Design Award Winners, Good Design Award Gold Winners and Good Design Best in Class Winners in the Architectural Design, Precinct Design and Service Design categories.

Be sure to check out the Good Design Award Best in Class videos celebrating the amazing design minds behind this year’s most innovative projects.

We’ll also be celebrating a number of Good Design Australia’s Special Accolades, including the Powerhouse Design Award, the Greener Spaces Better Places Award and the Design Institute of Australia Award.

Congratulations to all the Award Winners announced today and be sure to check back tomorrow as we reveal winners in our Design Research, Design Strategy, Digital Design, Fashion Design and our NextGen categories.

Welcome to Day One


The Good Design Award Winner accolade is presented to projects which in the view of the Jury represent best practice design and intelligent use of design principles. 

The Good Design Award Gold accolade is awarded to entries that have not only met the criteria for Good Design, but exceed them. Projects recognised at this level are considered stand-out projects within the category. 

GOOD DESIGN Best in class

The Good Design Award Best in Class accolade represents the pinnacle of design excellence in each sub-category and the very best projects within the Awards.

From a record 933 projects submitted to the Australian Good Design Awards this year, only 29 of the most outstanding projects qualified for the coveted Good Design Award Best in Class accolade.

We hope you will be as inspired by these ground-breaking products, products and services as we and the Jury were this year.
