Since 1992 the Powerhouse Museum has recognised excellence in Australian product design with its own Design Award and Selection as part of the annual Good Design Awards program. The Museum displays the winning products in the Success and Innovation gallery for one year. Some of these products and relevant design models and documents are added to the Museum's permanent collection of Australian industrial design.

The Museum's selection is made from the annual Good Design Awards finalists and the selection criteria include good design, innovation and the significance of a product to Australia's material culture. Products must demonstrate innovation in design, technology or materials that are of real benefit to users. They must also show potential to become important in the lives of Australians, be significant to Australian industry or provide an opportunity for Australian design to be recognised in the global marketplace.

The Powerhouse Museum Design Award is given to a product that has potential to make a significant improvement to the quality of health, wellbeing or the environment. This could be by creating an opportunity to sustain or enhance quality of life through improved safety, diagnosis, treatment, reduced injuries or trauma. Or it could contribute to a significant reduction in water, energy or materials use, or create an opportunity for improved management of environments or ecosystems. The Powerhouse Museum Design Award recognises the important role for design in harnessing the challenges of science and technology to make a positive impact on our lives.
