Museums Australasia Awards

The Field Guide to Australian Animals app was one of the winners at last year’s awards.


BIG NEWS! The MAPDAs are now officially called the Museums Australasia Multimedia and Publication Design Awards. Welcome to our Kiwi colleagues!

MAPDA News will be available at www.mapda.org.au

Don’t mix your MAPDAs with your MAGNAs. We know it can be a little confusing.

MAPDA is the Museums Australasia Multimedia and Publication Design Awards. The MAPDAs celebrate the pretty with less emphasis on the actual content. (Its spotty)

MAGNA is the Museums and Galleries National Awards. The MAGNAs also celebrate the pretty but focus primarily on innovation and excellence in exhibition, audience engagement and indigenous projects. (Its stripy)

MAPDA is kindly sponsored by Australian Book Connection.
