 The 2017 Awards for Excellence Presentation Dinner

The AMIC SA Awards for Excellence Dinner was held on August 12th at the Playford Hotel, North Terrace, Adelaide.

258 AMIC members, industry partners and guests enjoyed the night of award presentations, networking, music & dancing.

The theme for the night was the 70s and there were plenty of guests who dusted off the flares, put on the glitter and the platform shoes ready for a night of fun. Please click here for photos: SA Awards for Excellence Album & Party Album
