“The number of entries was impressive” announced George Liddle, Chair of the APDG Board. With so many quality entrants this year it was difficult for the judges to make a decision.
The APDG Awards is an annual event first held in 2011. It gathers together a myriad of talents and associated production design professionals from the Australian film, television, stage and interactive multimedia industries to celebrate the art of visually captivating audiences the world over.
