Australian Mobile Awards (Mobies)

The Australian Mobile Awards is the founding program in design100 Digital Design Awards. Celebrating creativity, courage and innovation in mobile achievements by both creators and commissioners, the awards provide a unique opportunity for all sectors of the industry to participate across an extensive range of entry categories and achieve marketplace recognition.

In 2012 nearly 250 projects were submitted. In a growing, continually developing industry who are keen to showcase their work and create conversation, we anticipate well above this mark in 2013.

In keeping with our theme of innovation and courage, 2013 will see the introduction of two new post awards promotion opportunities – Design Showcase and Design Annual.

Design Showcase is a touring exhibit curated from all design100 awards programs. The Design Annual is a 660+ page hardback book covering the best in Australian Design and featuring key market insights from industry leaders. The Design Annual will be distributed to the Top 1000 company CEOs throughout Australia. Great design is integral to higher shareholder returns.

Join us as we celebrate courage and astounding achievements and developments in the mobile industry.
