The 2014 Eat Drink Design Awards shortlist has been announced, with 68 projects from across Australia and New Zealand progressing on to compete at the annual awards ceremony on Tuesday, 18 November.

Celebrating excellence and innovation in the design of hospitality and retail venues of all scales and types, the awards feature six categories: Best Bar Design, Best Restaurant Design, Best Café Design, Best Temporary design, Best Retail Design and Best Identity Design.

This year’s program received 151 entries, with the jury panel consisting of food writer and critic Michael Harden, principal of CO-AP Architects Tina Engelen, director at Hassell Kirsti Simpson, restaurateur Simon Denton and editorial director of Architecture Media Cameron Bruhn.

“The Eat Drink Design Awards are a crucial piece of the scaffolding that supports our great Australian food and wine industry,” says past juror and program ambassador Jill Dupleix, who presided over the shortlist announcement event.

“Great design helps frame and define our Australian sense of hospitality, and is as creative and fresh as the food we eat.”

Winners of each category will be awarded a $1,500 cash prize. An additional prestigious ‘Hall of Fame’ accolade will be presented for enduring excellence in the design of a hospitality venue of 20 or more years standing.

Potential recipients are assessed on design innovation for the time, creative leadership, technical advancement, and the project’s national significance as a hospitality venue.
