Melbourne Design Week Award 2021 Past Event

Presented by Mercedes-Benz

The Melbourne Design Week Award presented by Mercedes-Benz is an annual prize awarded for an outstanding contribution to Australia’s largest international design event. The winner is selected by the Melbourne Design Week curatorial team, including Ewan McEoin,  Simone LeAmon, and Timothy Moore.

While reviewing submissions and visiting exhibitions and events within 300+ programs the curators search for the stand-out contribution from the year that most resonantly responds to the 2021 theme ‘Design the World You Want’ and the key program pillars of Care, Community and Climate.

The winner receives peer recognition among the local and international design community, and a cash prize thanks to Major Partner, Mercedes-Benz.

Florian Seidler, Managing Director Mercedes-Benz Cars & CEO Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific said ‘Mercedes-Benz is proud to be a major partner of Melbourne Design Week in 2021. This year’s diverse and comprehensive program of events presents a wonderful opportunity to explore important design conversations and celebrate local design talent. We’re pleased to reward this talent with the return of the Melbourne Design Week Award presented by Mercedes-Benz’.

The winner will be announced online during Melbourne Design Week 2021. Follow @ngvmelbourne and @mercedesbenzau on instagram or subscribe for NGV Design Week updates here.
