IPA awards

Past Awards

congratulations 2022 winners!

After a challenging few years for everyone in our industry, what a great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary!

As this is our very first awards program we are more than thrilled with the amount of submissions we received from our members in Australia and New Zealand.

The aim of launching these awards are to:

  • Recognise some of the most outstanding work done by our members during 2022;
  • Inspire other members to strive to set higher and higher standards, both for their own businesses and clients, as well as for the industry; and
  • More broadly, to foster greater media and community awareness and recognition of the exceptional work our members deliver on a daily basis.

We are very grateful to our judges – David Howard, Melissa Marsden and Paul Plant who generously gave their time and professional input into the judging process.

And the winners are …

Small Installation

Nerida’s Interior Plantscaping - VIC

The brief from their client was to make a busy public shopping centre space feel more friendly and inviting to address antisocial behaviour and to attract shoppers to stay longer. Plants had to be safe for use in a public space including food court areas with consideration given to pots being knocked over and also anti-theft strategies.

Medium Installation

Green Design Indoor Plant Hire - NSW

When we were approached by this client in November, they wanted an installation by early January. As you can imagine, this is a very busy time of year for everyone, including the other stakeholders we would be working with. They wanted as much nature as possible and wanted a natural finish to their pots. They also wanted a tree in their entry!

Large Installation

Outside In - NZ

When moving into their new build offices, the client wanted a space that would bring calm to a busy workplace. A high-profile office for 300 plus staff, they wanted to emulate the New Zealand forest experience.
To bring this vision to reality, we designed a unique new product, Forest Floor™ that naturally mimics the undulations, contours and look of the forest undergrowth.
