Judges' Comments:

The finalists were all of a very high standard, with an in depth level of research and rigour. However the submissions that showed exceptional skill, innovation, maturity embracing sustainability at a very responsible level, were the 1st prize winners from the Textile Design and Industrial Design categories.

Both projects displayed the depth and breadth of the design profession; Textile Design with the capacity to provoke an emotional response as a work of art produced a thoughtful collection, Industrial Design to solve real medical needs in an innovative and technically competent manner.

The judges believed that these projects earned the right to be nominated as equal winners and accordingly the DIA along with their partnering sponsors accepted the recommendation. Both entries touched the judges' intellect and heart, with both students showing leadership in their chosen field.
