Entries open for 2019 Dulux Colour Awards

Entries are now open for the 33rd edition of the Dulux Colour Awards, an awards program that celebrates the use of colour across commercial, public and residential projects.

The program is open to architects, interior architects, interior designers, interior decorators and students from Australia and New Zealand.

Dulux’s communication manager Andrea Lucena-Orr said the awards are a chance for architects and designers to show off their exceptional use of colour.

“Colour has the ability to transform and define a space,” she said. “Dulux is hoping to see entrants push creativity to new heights – using colour to create inspired, bold and ambitious spaces.”

The overall winner of last year’s awards was Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects’ Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel, which the jury praised for its “nuanced juxtaposition of contextually inspired hues.” The 2019 Dulux Colour Awards will open on 18 January and will accept entries until Thursday 28 February 2019 across the following categories:

  • Commercial Interior – Workplace and Retail
  • Commercial Interior – Public and and Hospitality
  • Commercial and Multi-Residential Exterior
  • Residential Interior
  • Single Residential Exterior
  • Student (Years 1-6)

Each professional category winner will receive A$1,000 in prize money (winners of the Student category will receive AUD $500). All professional category winners will be eligible for the Australian or New Zealand Grand Prix titles, which are worth A$5,000 and NZ$5,000 respectively.

The shortlist will be announced in March and winners will be revealed at a gala function at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) on 8 May. The event will be compered by architect and Grand Designs Australia host, Peter Maddison.
