Entry Fees

Entry to the Good Design Awards incurs a standard Registration Fee. Winning entries that receive a Good Design Award will be automatically included in the Winners Package at an additional cost.

The Good Design Winners Package is optional. Applicants that do not wish to take up this package can opt-out in their Application Form.

The Good Design Awards program runs on a break even basis. More information on why we charge a fee to enter the Awards can be found in our FAQs.

Financial assistance is not guaranteed and each application will be treated on a case by case basis.
