38th Dulux Colour Awards

Announced last night at the Sydney Opera House, the winners of the 38th Dulux Colour Awards represent the pinnacle of design excellence and the most innovative, refined and transformative use of colour in the built environment.



Selected from 83 finalists across Australia and New Zealand, this year’s winning projects are exceptional in their paradigm shifting approach to colour usage, challenging the accepted norms of their respective typologies and setting new benchmarks for innovation with colour.

“We aim to identify the ultimate expressions of colour in the built environment and, in doing so, to highlight the transformative potential of colour when combined with outstanding design,” explained Andrea Lucena-Orr, Dulux Colour and Communications Manager.
