August / DIA / Graduate of the Year Awards

We invite you to join us in celebrating the Design Institute of Australia’s flagship program for emerging designers, 2019 Graduate of the Year Awards (GOTYA) Ceremony.

GOTYA is a unique program created to support and celebrate exceptional designers from around Australia in the early stages of their career.

Educators were invited to nominate their most talented 2018 graduating students in the disciplines of Fashion Design, Furniture Design, Industrial / Product Design, Interior Decoration, Interior Design, Jewellery Design, Textile Design and Visual Communications Design.

Our biggest year yet, the DIA has received a record number of nominations from across Australia including:

  • Griffith University
  • Queensland University of Technology
  • TAFE NSW Fashion Design Studio
  • Torrens University Australia, Billy Blue College of Design


Through a detailed judging process evaluating entrant's predicted impact on the Australian design industry, graduate portfolios have been anonymously assessed and finalists interviewed by a panel of judges from each design discipline.
