The 2022 VIVID Design Awards will take place at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from Thursday 14th July – Sunday 17th July. The Awards ceremony will take place at 3pm on Thursday 14th July.

VIVID is Australia’s longest-running design competition. 2022 marks the 19th anniversary of this highly anticipated industry platform which shines a spotlight on our emerging and early career furniture, lighting & object designers.

VIVID has kick-started the careers of many prolific Australian designers including Nicole Monks, Edward Linacre, Adam Markowitz, Dale Hardiman… and is the number one award destination for emerging and early career Australian designers.

Curated by Latitude Group’s Daniel Dalla Riva, VIVID is an important destination for both the local and international design industries. Latitude is an advocate for authentic design and nurturing emerging Australian designers. Latitude has curated the Vivid Design Awards for six years, and is proud to have played our part in advancing the careers of some of Australia’s most exciting furniture, object, and lighting designers.

VIVID has already assisted over 1,000 designers with more than 1,300 products to kick-start their careers. Judged by a panel of prominent and respected industry figures, finalists will exhibit their work at the VIVID Awards Exhibition at Decor + Design from 14-17th July 2022.

Awards categories include Furniture Design, Lighting Design, Object Design, Concept Design, the Authentic Design Alliance Award of Merit, the VIVID 2022 Judges Choice Award, and the newly created VIVID 2022 Student Design Award.

It was such a rewarding and valuable experience being part of the VIVID 2021, I feel the awards are a true representation of the Australian design community, which is both creatively progressive and encouraging. An amazing awards program where industry leaders and emerging talent meet to celebrate the achievements of local design together
