Australian Craft Awards 2013
Inaugurated in 2013, the design100 Australian Craft Awards aim to celebrate the role that craft plays in contemporary society. Craft is the art form that appeals to the most people in Australia. Recent Australian Bureau of Statistics research shows that over 2 million Australians practice craft.
design100 Australian Craft Awards recognises the enormous talent that resides in Australian craft through a series of state based Craft Awards, which documents every entrant and then selects outstanding recipients from a variety of self-selecting categories.
Entry to the Australian Craft Awards will open on 12 June 2013 and will close on 15 September 2013. Outcomes will be announced during November 2013. All entrants will be documented on line and in hard copy in design100’s new publication The Design Annual.
The Australian Craft Awards will be awarded by state and adjudicated by a panel of industry based curators and senior craft makers, coordinated by Joe Pascoe (former Director Shepparton Art Gallery and former CEO & Artistic Director Craft Victoria).
Your involvement will give you great exposure. Chosen recipients will receive special recognition at the awards ceremonies around Australia and widespread promotion.

Market organisers Michelle Stagoll and Susie Lunt have seen the market grow in popularity as the months go by. “Our first market had around 35 stalls, and this has steadily picked up each month, we are now at full capacity at over 60 stalls and have a waiting list of eager applicants”. “It’s great to see that the local community has embraced our market and to see the same faces coming back each month to support our designers” Stagoll said.
