Victorian Premier’s Design Awards Showcase – Celebrating 25 Years of Design Excellence
The Victorian Premier’s Design Awards Showcase for the first time shines a spotlight on a quarter of a century of award-winning design in Victoria. Established in 1996, these awards have recognized and rewarded Victorian designers and businesses that display excellence in the way they use design. The exhibition explores through five themes: THEN, WHO, HOW, NOW and NEXT, the designers, their design practice, the outstanding work and its impact, not just here in Victoria, but on a global scale.

Self Portrait will present 22 self-portraits by Australian creatives, telling us who they are in this moment. Creatives were encouraged to think about their personal and professional selves, representing themselves in a single object.
