The winners of the Queensland Premier’s Design Awards 2011 were announced last week at the State Library of Queensland…

Established in 2006 by Arts Queensland as the Smart State Designer of the Year Award to recognise excellence and professionalism by a Queensland Designer, it has been replaced by the Queensland Premier’s Design Awards across two categories.

The Smart State Design Fellowship recognises significant contributions made by an individual or team in developing a design culture within Queensland with the winner receiving a $40,000 bursary, supported by Indesign. Shortlisted were Ari Athens (Jewellery), Tanja Hall (JOLT – Visual Communication & Design), Kevin O’Brien (Architecture), Robert Riddel (Architecture) and winner, Nicola Lloyd (Lloyd Grey Design – Branding & Communications).

The Emerging Design Leader Award recognises an emerging Queensland designer who embodies excellence in their expertise, talent, skill and commitment to design. The recipient of this award receives a $10,000 travel bursary to attend an international design event of their choice. Shortlisted were Jamie Perrow and winner, Yen Trinh.

Congratulations to all who entered, the finalists and finally the winners!
