The innovation that runs through GDA is not only that the awards themselves but also in the way that their publication is linked into your marketing and PR. 

By creating 12 separate awards throughout the year, a single product, project or service can be publicised to different target audiences at different times. For instance a Design Thinking Award would have the attention of that particular public audience, whereas the Innovative Product Award on the product would appeal to a different group
