Yesterday, we posted the winner of the 2009 Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Awards, and now today we’ve received some of the other entries.

The Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award is a generous legacy of the late Colin Rigg (1895–1982), a former Secretary of the National Gallery of Victoria Felton Bequests’ Committee. This ‘Award of Excellence’ focuses on contemporary design practice in the state of Victoria. This award is arguably the most prestigious offered to a contemporary designer in Australia, with a prize of $30,000. In 2009 the exhibition is dedicated to contemporary furniture design.
