To uphold the standards our stakeholders have come to expect, we strive for excellence in all facets of design assessment and promotion, and pride ourselves on the following checklist of key quality attributes.

Longevity
The Good Design Awards has been rewarding design and innovation excellence in Australia for more than 50 years. Few awards programs can lay claim to such a long and influential history, both in Australia and internationally.

Credibility
The Good Design Awards is independent, transparent and has been associated with Standards Australia, Australia’s peak standards body, for more than 20 years.

Industry Support
The Good Design Awards regularly seeks design industry feedback and input on the way it operates, and has gained the strong support and participation from many blue chip designers and manufacturers in Australia and overseas.

Calibre of Judges
Our high calibre of local judges are joined by international design experts representing some of the world’s leading businesses including Philips, Motorola, Mercedes-Benz, Electrolux, Dyson, Fisher & Paykel, Samsung and more. Past judges have also represented some of the world's best design consultancies including Pentagram, Teague, Frog Design, Smart Design, Tangerine, GK Design Group, BMW DesignworksUSA and more.

Quality of Assessment Process
Our assessment process has been described by our international judges to be one of the most rigorous in the world. Still one of the few programs to physically test the entries for assessment, we pride ourselves on best practice design benchmarking at a global level.
International Endorsement
The Good Design Awards has gained the endorsement of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), the World Organisation for Industrial Design.

Cost Competitive
For the price of a one-off advertisement in a trade publication, your company and design will receive ongoing promotion leading to sales and media enquiries in perpetuity. At a minimum, your design is assigned a permanent entry profile on the highly ranked Good Design Awards website attracting visitation by more than 400,000 unique visitors per annum.

Mass Media Attention
The Good Design Awards actively pursues every opportunity to promote entries to the media by drafting regular media releases, establishing long term media relationships and attracting widespread exposure with many of the leading publications, TV and radio programs in Australia and internationally.

Ongoing Promotional Opportunities
Well beyond your entry year into the Good Design Awards, you can be sure your company and design are being promoted through local and international trade shows and exhibitions, online and phone enquiries, printed publications and much more.

The Good Design Awards continually strives to be one of the leading design endorsement schemes in the world. You can be sure your designs are in safe hands with this credible, trusted and well supported operation.
