The Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ) has the BeST Design Awards finalists on its website. The awards acknowledge the country’s best graphic, product and spatial design over 29 categories.

A record-breaking 590 entries were received this year, the most the awards has seen in its 21-year history. DINZ CEO, Cathy Veninga, says they are the "highest standard ever seen", which, she says, reflects a coming of age of NZ's creative sector.

The design industry is certainly booming. There are currently around 16,000 designers employed in Auckland, a figure that has seen an increase by 63 per cent between 2000 and 2008.

The fancy black tie awards night is at the Auckland Museum on Friday 16 October. Order your $165 ticket on the website.
