So you think you can judge?

The Graduate of the Year Awards (GOTYA) is gearing up for its biggest year yet. The DIA has received a record number of nominations from design educators from a record number of institutions across Australia.

This unique program was created to support and celebrate exceptional designers from around Australia in the early stages of their career. GOTYA is instrumental in providing tertiary institutions and design graduates with vital, real-life feedback from experienced designers.

We are calling for practising designers and industry figures to express their interest in participating on the GOTYA discipline-specific judging panels in all major cities.

Judges will evaluate the nominees' anonymous portfolios based on a transparent judging process and criteria. Finalists are interviewed by the judging panels in person to determine their transferable workplace skills and predicted impact on the Australian design industry.

If you’re in the market to hire some fresh talent, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet last year’s top graduates.

The judging will take place in the second half of May 2019.

To expressions your interest, please contact Head of National Programs and Events, Caroline Caneva ccaneva@design.org.au.
