Comments from Past AGDA Judges
Was the judging fun? Two days - sixteen hours - for all nine of us, but there is a reward for seeing the very best of Australian graphic design. Was it fair? Yes, given that the large number of entries were seen in relation to each other, rather than in a more individual context... I'm sure the subjective 'I wish I'd done that' or 'I'm glad I didn't' view permeated the judging. But the diversity of the judges would have ensured that most of the entries received the recognition they deserved.

The team effort was magnificent ... the logistics of the whole judging event was mind blowing, it was so professional on the part of AGDA and all the students too, heaps of praise to all of you.

It's that time again–awards time. Why, you might ask. Why are they important? Well, there's the orgy of backslapping and promise of instant fame. There's the ammunition behind your salary increase request. There's the opportunity to pit your work against that of your peers. And of course there's the big shindig at the end to celebrate it all.
But the most important reason for the AGDA Awards is to document and celebrate Australian graphic design every two years. It is a pertinent snapshot of where our industry has been and where it is headed. Without it there would be no dialogue, no history, no continuity, no critical analysis, no passing on of knowledge and no exchange of ideas."
