The Australian Production Design Guild is proudly supported by companies and individuals from both the live performance and screen industries.

The APDG would like to reiterate our thanks to those that sponsored and partnered the recent 10th Anniversary APDG Awards. You can learn more about those wonderful sponsors and partners HERE or find the links to their website on our HOMEPAGE.

In particular, we would like to acknowledge our Principal Sponsor, Docklands Studios Melbourne and their CEO, Rod Allan, as he has been a particularly staunch supporter of the APDG since its inception. Even though Rod will be retiring in 2022, he will remain a vital part of APDG history.

Thank you Rod.


The APDG understand that each industry sponsor and partner have unique strategic goals, preferred communication methods or have a passion for a particular area of the guild. If you are interested in becoming an APDG sponsor, the first step would be to have a meeting, either on the phone, via Zoom or in person, to discuss the benefit of sponsorship for you, for the APDG and to establish that our ethics, brands and goals align. Below are some examples of current sponsorship opportunities.


The APDG currently has relationships with a range of different organisations that mutually benefit both parties. Along with knowledge-sharing, networking and branding opportunities for industry partners, we give free membership to the best up and coming student designers and film festival winners.
