The Australian International Design Awards is now aligned to Vivid Sydney, the annual festival of light, music and ideas, to create the inaugural Australian International Design Festival.

The Design Festival will take place during Vivid Sydney 2013 from 30 May to 10 June and will feature an international design conference, a public design showcase, the prestigious Australian International Design Awards Presentation Ceremony and a series of design celebrations.

Brandon Gien, Managing Director of Good Design Australia, believes that aligning the Design Festival to Vivid Sydney is a natural fit and will highlight Sydney’s position on the world design map and elevate the important role good design plays in our daily lives.

"The inaugural Design Festival will promote Australian design to the world and will reinforce the message that Sydney is an international city with iconic design at its core. We are looking forward to working with the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, and Business Events Sydney to deliver a world class design event.”

The Design Forum, an integral part of the Design Festival, will feature some of the world's most prominent design leaders who will talk about the latest industry trends and spark debate on how design is playing a leading role in shaping a better future.

The Australian International Design Awards will be calling for entries from 1 February 2013 to feature in the inaugural Design Festival. Finalists will be invited to take part in the Good Design Showcase at Westfield Sydney, Bondi Junction and Parramatta shopping centres during the Design Festival.
