Australia’s emerging and student designers have less than a week left to send in their submissions to WORKSHOPPED 17, a design exhibition that promotes Australian product design globally.

Now in its 17th year, the exhibition provides a powerful platform that brings together manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and Australian product designers.

For this year’s exhibition, WORKSHOPPED 17 asks designers "Does your design demand attention and is it fit for purpose?”

Workshopped also announces a new partnership with lighting visionary Brightgreen. As a supporting partner of #workshopped17, the leading lighting company offers all participating designers a chance to win a week-long internship along with flights and accommodation in Melbourne.
