MELBOURNE, VIC & SYDNEY, NSW: The 2010 Australian International Design Awards program is now open for entries.

By participating, companies may achieve independent design endorsement; increase their exposure to consumers, potential clients, product manufacturers and design-related businesses; and gain international recognition with a local marketing edge.

“The real benefit in entering the Australian International Design Awards comes from the valuable add-ons applicants are exposed to,” said program director Stephanie Watson.

“Not only is your product independently assessed by a panel of Australian and international design experts, we also offer a range of marketing opportunities for all applicants to tap into, including trademark licensing agreements, high profile media opportunities and product exposure.”

All professionally designed products available for sale in Australia, plus products professionally designed by Australians for overseas markets, are eligible to enter. Entries close on 1 December 2009.
