Search for a Home is on!

The Australian Event Awards is currently homeless! After a fabulous partnership for the past three years with Sydney Olympic Park, organisers have received interest from around the country to host. So they thought the best and fairest thing to do would be to throw the doors open to everyone!


There's no place like home

In giving the awards a home one destination will distinguish themselves as the events capital of Australia. They’ll host the Industry Night of Nights, and receive valuable national industry exposure.

Electric Canvas for Vivid Sydney

Electric Canvas won the 2012 Australian Event Award for Best Achievement in Design, Look or Theming.

The Australian Event Awards aims to promote truly innovative and clever use of design, which is why Electric Canvas was a stand-out winner for their project City Life which was part of Vivid Festival Sydney in 2012. Judges said “In a country that has enjoyed some magnificent large scale lighting projects over the past fifteen years, this has set a new benchmark of sheer joy. It was a magnificent creative and technical achievement.”
