The Australian Window Association Design Awards for the fenestration industry are on. From Wednesday, 18 April 2007 the AWA will accept submissions for the 2007 AWA Design Awards.

The inaugural AWA Design Awards in 2006 made waves within the window industry, with over 50 entries received in total. The winners were announced in September 2006 at the AWA national Conference in Alice Springs, and the AWA ensured each award recipient had extensive support and exposure.

The AWA Design Awards recognise the efforts of window manufacturers and suppliers that contribute to the industry by excelling in the production and promotion of windows and doors through innovation.One of the core aims of the AWA is to advance the awareness of windows as a major architectural component in building design. The Awards worked towards this aim by highlighting the companies that had made outstanding achievements in the following areas:

  • Best use of windows and doors (commercial and one residential)
  • Most innovative component
  • Most innovative window system
  • Showroom of the year (large and small showroom categories)

More information and entry form can be downloaded from the AWA website. Entries close on Friday, 27 July 2007.
