Entries open for 2021 Eat Drink Design Awards

Signature dishes, perfectly pitched drinks and impeccable service are all integral to the eating and drinking experience, but a venue’s interior is an equally important ingredient. Good design is good for business – it attracts patrons, keeps them returning and creates an efficient working environment for staff.

The annual Eat Drink Design Awards supports innovation and excellence in the design of hospitality and retail premises serving or selling food and beverages. The program recognizes and celebrates Australia and New Zealand’s best projects, rewarding design achievement in seven categories.

The jury in 2021 includes Katie McCormack (restauranteur of Congress, Future Future and Lagotto), Anthony Gill (founder of Anthony Gill Architects), Sarah Cosentino (co-director of Studio Esteta), Matt Shea (editor-at-large of Broadsheet Brisbane) and Cassie Hansen (editor of Artichoke).

The Eat Drink Design Awards are endorsed by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Design Institute of Australia, and made possible by supporting partners Latitude and Roca.
