The Inaugural Banksia Ignite Award encourages innovation and new ideas so that we provide momentum for sustainability to flourish around Australia.
Banksia Ignite is looking for the inspiration behind new products, processes, services and technologies that contribute to the development and well-being of human needs and institutions while respecting the world’s natural resources and regenerative capacity.
It is for the best projects, idea and initiatives that don’t yet have the results, resources or funding!
This award is aimed at students, young designers, researchers, start-ups and companies who want to showcase, further develop or market their concepts in order to change society and the economy and to gain exposure to be able to continue their great concept.
We will support the selection of finalists and then the winner, providing them with a platform where they can present their concept and ideas to a wider audience to be able to secure further funding, as well as exposure to the media to present their stories.
Through this award, Banksia will be encouraging sustainable innovation and disruptive initiatives, with the aim to develop better business models, improved processes, streamline resource flows, reduce waste and cost – possibly even creating new market segments entirely.
Sustainability and innovation work well together because innovation is about making things better in the long term. If you are working on an innovative project, we invite you to download the Banksia Ignite Award Kit.
