After 10 years of the VACC Automotive Design Awards, VACC has decided to cease running the student competition. Therefore there will not be a VACC Automotive Design Awards event in 2016 or from us in the foreseeable future.
The decision has been made so VACC can refocus its energies on its 5,000 small business members in Victoria and consider other activities to promote their businesses.
VACC would like to take this opportunity to thank all stakeholders for their participation, and in particular, we thank members of the Judging Panel for their considerable time and input.
We are proud to have presented 60 Awards, provided work experience, internships, an overseas scholarship and introduce students, parents and teachers to professional designers. We hope that through the Design Awards, VACC has supported next generation automotive designers carve out successful careers, at the same time as raising the profile of the automotive design sector and the wider automotive industry.
