The winning designer will receive a $20,000 cash prize, an invitation to develop the winning prototype, or a related piece, with Stylecraft and a two-week residency at JamFactory, Adelaide.

The Australian Furniture Design Award (AFDA) recognises excellence in Australian furniture design and its contribution to design discourse and Australian culture.

In response to the Melbourne Design Week theme ‘How can design shape life?’ the 2020 Australian Furniture Design Award asks designers and makers to consider the broader implications and opportunities of furniture design.

Open to all Australian designers and makers, Stage One of the Australian Furniture Design Award is now open for registrations. Submissions for a new and original furniture design concept close on 15 November 2019.

Register via the NGV website to receive the competition brief and conditions.
