Port Phillip Council in Melbourne is calling for nominations for its biennial City of Port Phillip Design and Development Awards 2020, presented in conjunction with the National Gallery of Victoria’s Melbourne Design Week.
The nominations are for awards that have been held every two years since 1998. The awards encourage and celebrate design excellence in urban design, architecture, Heritage, public space, sustainability, interior architecture and urban art in Port Phillip.

“We’re proud to be featured as part of Melbourne Design Week, Australia’s leading annual international design event, sharing Port Phillip’s flair with the world.”
The jury, to be announced on 18 October 2019, will comprise industry professionals, councillors and council officers.
