Over the past 20 years, iAwards has become the premier technology awards platform in Australia delivering the most comprehensive awards program which recognises the achievements and innovation made in ICT across all facets of the economy.

The iAwards honours both companies at the cutting edge of technology innovation as well as leading professionals across the ICT industry. Most importantly, the iAwards recognises the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators.

The key goal of the iAwards is to discover, recognise and reward the ICT innovations that have the potential to, or are already having a positive impact on the community – at home, in the office and on a global scale.  The iAwards also recognises the achievements made and value added by ICT professionals, CIOs and innovators.

In 2011 the iAwards opened to both the companies at the cutting edge technology innovation as well as leading professionals across the industry. The iAwards are judged by industry, for industry and provide achievements with public recognition that extends across the ICT sector to government, community and beyond. They are strongly focused on promoting essential relationships between the ICT industry and vertical business sectors in every field to promote the value of our industry where it counts most.

The host partners of the iAwards, the Australian Computer Society (ACS), Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) and the Pearcey Foundation, strongly advocate the importance of recognising the innovation and productivity which ICT delivers across all facets of Australian life.
