A record number of entries. Source: MAPDA

The organisations below have been shortlisted in the 2015 MAPDAs. Congratulations!

The 2015 awards were the biggest yet. We received more entries than past years. Some categories were so well represented we had a hard time fitting them all on the tables.

It has been simply amazing and truly heartening to see so many publications from our sector. The record number of entries is testament to the enduring popularity of books, catalogues, posters and other printed works across the cultural sectors in Australia and New Zealand.
