Entries for the Australian Contemporary Emerging Design Awards are now closed! The AFA are delighted with the overwhelming response and number of nominations for this major competition. 

In 2015, the AFA is pleased to provide ACE Award Winners with exhibition space at the AFA’s International Pavilions as part of an Australian Trade Mission to Tent London (24-27 September 2015).

The ACE Design Awards reflect the vision of FURNITEX connect and were open to students and emerging designers from all fields related to the furniture industry for nomination. Nominees will be represented at the FURNITEX connect exhibition on 9 – 12 July 2015, and award winners announced at a Gala Cocktail Event on Saturday 11 July 2015.

The role of the Australian Furniture Association is to provide an arena to acknowledge and showcase the work and the potential of these amazing creative Australians to national and international markets.

As the enthusiasm and passion for design continues to evolve, future generations of furniture designers and makers must be assured that there is support from the national peak body for the industry, the AFA, and the design community as a whole.

For regular updates on nominees and their pieces be sure to follow the AFA and FURNITEX connect social media pages.
