2009 Cicely and Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award

The Cicely and Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award is a generous legacy of the late Colin Rigg (1895–1982), a former Secretary of the Felton Bequests' Committee. This ‘Award of Excellence’ focuses on contemporary design practice in the state of Victoria and is a reflection of the NGV’s continuing support for and commitment to contemporary design.

This award is arguably the richest and most prestigious prize ever offered to a contemporary designer in Australia with a prize of $30,000. Each exhibition is devoted to a particular design discipline. The past four exhibitions represented ceramics (1994), metalwork (1997), textiles (2003) and jewellery (2006). In 2009 the exhibition is dedicated to contemporary furniture design.
