iAwards – Celebrating excellence in Australian Innovation

The iAwards honours companies and individuals at the cutting edge of technology innovation that is making a difference to the community, and recognises the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators from the likes of Atlassian, Google Maps and WiseTech Global.

Entries for the iAwards open in September and with the State iAward winners and merit recipients announced in June, and National iAwards take place in August. Our National winners then prepare for APICTA over September and October.

The host of the iAwards, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), strongly advocates the importance of recognising the innovation and productivity which ICT delivers across all facets of Australian life.

About the iAwards Judges Council

The iAwards Judges Council comprises of the Chief Judge, Fulvio Inserra, Domain Judges and invited Members who together oversee the entire iAwards judging process to ensure confidentiality, transparency and integrity are maintained. The Domain Judges in consultation with the Chief Judge select the Lead Judge in each iAward category.  The Chief, Domain and Lead Judges then work together to select Panel Judges who judge each category's entries. 

All Judges are volunteers who give up their time to support the iAwards, enabling nominees to highlight their innovations and promote their business to investors, partners, the media and potential customers, both within Australia and overseas.
