Upcoming Events — 2022

The weather will be good, we will have had the chance to reset over the summer break and we can celebrate our community as a community – together, holding up the best our industry has to offer.

To ensure that Best can be the celebration we want it to be, this week we have made the difficult decision to move the award evening to Friday 18th February, 2022.

The Best Awards marks the annual moment where we pause and raise a pin (and a glass) to the contribution design makes to our culture, our economy and our unique place in the world.

We look forward to seeing you for the first summer edition of Best Awards.

*If you have booked for the 5th November and the February date doesn't work for you we will refund (see our Rules on refund policy).

Brought to you by The Designers Institute of New Zealand, The Best Design Awards is an annual showcase of excellence in graphic, spatial, product, digital and motion design along with three special awards - Value of Design, Public Good and Toitanga
