Yes, the Cormack Awards are on again with design students from the leading universities competing for one of the most practical design competitions in Australia.

Students from the University of Technology Sydney, the University of New South Wales, the University of Canberra and Monash University are this year busily creating designs to meet the brief for the Cormack Award.

The Cormack Award is regarded as one of the most practical awards, as the competition criteria and judging is done by people working in FMCG, beverage and pharmaceutical companies, the same people that one day will be commissioning designs from these students.

The awards culminate in the Presentation Night which this year will be held in Sydney in October. Past winners of the award include Tim Bird and Frag Woodall who are both working with Cormack.
