The Design Categories for the 2023 WAC Show are:


Embrace the idea of Society in all its many and varied forms. You can take inspiration from family, community, culture and traditions or look at the structures and systems that make a society.


Take your inspiration from the environment around you. Will you look to the beauty of the natural environment or make a statement about issues affecting our environment?
