It received a distinction in the Publications category. The magazine was redesigned in 2017 by Melbourne design studio Years-Months-Days (Y-M-D).

The designers were Liz Cosentino and Steve Lees, with Shirley Abbatovi, Matt Edwards and Meg Phillips as creative directors.

The top prize in the Publications category, the Pinnacle, went to the National Gallery of Victoria’s catalogue for the 2017 Triennial, designed by Dirk Hiscock.
