Laminex announces a $10,000 business grant as part of its new online award program for all Australian fabrication, design and specification businesses.

Launched 1 March, Laminex Australia’s Project of the Year design award program encourages these businesses to submit projects that have used Formica, Laminex or essastone products in residential or commercial design work.

Laminex Australia General Manager Marketing, George Bej explains that Project of the Year aims to celebrate the diversity of the Laminex Australia portfolio, and its clever and inspirational applications.

According to Mr Bej, Laminex products are used everywhere from hospitals, schools, hotels and offices to retail shop fitting and homes, bringing to life commercial as well as residential spaces.

Project of the Year closes 27 November and is hosted on Laminex Australia’s Facebook page. Each month, the public will vote to determine a Project of the Month, which will be awarded a $500 eftpos card.

All eligible entries received from 1 March to 20 November will be considered for the Project of the Year title, which will be determined by a panel of industry judges led by Laminex Australia Group Design Director, Neil Sookee.

The Project of the Year will be announced in December, with the business responsible for the winning entry to receive a $10,000 business grant.
