Hosted by MC Fenella Kernebone, the APDG Awards will be held on Sunday, December 16 at The Eternity Playhouse in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
President George Liddle APDG says, ‘The Guild is thrilled to represent all the talent from the diverse areas of design and to highlight and award the outstanding work produced over the last year in our annual awards.
With a growing membership from screen and live performance design practitioners, and the inclusion of the six new categories, we can also highlight the achievements of designers working on international productions, web series and in the game industry.
With 104 nominees across 27 categories, the following local and international productions are represented by APDG members and design excellence from live performance, screen, animation, interactive and events.
We look forward to celebrating with nominees, friends and family and our valued sponsors (existing and new) who make staging the awards possible. Congratulations to everyone involved.’
Vice-President Fiona Donovan APDG adds, ‘I’m very excited to have so many new categories this year where we are able to acknowledge the amazing work of the diverse skills of the members of the APDG. For the first time some of our founding members are able to be recognised for their internationally renowned skills.’
The APDG Awards Committee would like to acknowledge and thank the ongoing support from our valued Sponsors, some of whom have been with us since the inception of the APDG. We are excited to welcome new Sponsors in 2018 including Adobe and Unity and more to announce in the coming week.
The annual APDG Awards exists and continues to thrive due to the generosity of these creative companies and organisations. We look forward to supporting them over the next year by promoting the great work the do.
