Are you working on one of Australia's best innovations? Get it the recognition it deserves by entering the iAwards today.
The iAwards are the most inclusive and well-recognised innovation awards program in Australia. The program uniquely invites entrant innovations from across all industries in Australia. Whether you are an IT firm, a family-owned farm, a local concreting company, or a multinational, we encourage you to apply and reap the benefits associated with participating in the iAwards journey, including:
Publicity and media exposure
Just by making a submission, entrants will have their profile heightened. Many of our entrants see it as part of their ‘awareness campaign’. It’s an excellent opportunity to get in front of key digital decision makers and players in the industry.
The AIIA represents digital organisations nationally and have over 400 members. The iAwards itself has a robust marketing campaign that drives traffic back to the iAwards website. Once submissions are made, entrant logos will feature on the iAwards website, along with a company description.
Interactive briefing sessions will be made available online and in person for all entrants – networking and collaboration can start right here. In addition, iAwards partners such as Deloitte, Gartner, Grant Thornton, KPMG, Pym's Technology Lawyers and UTS offer high value products and services to entrants.
Increased media attention is another plus that our past entrants have benefited from. The iAwards has excellent media relationships and journalists are always seeking the next success story.
Networking and partnership opportunities
Entrants are encouraged to attend the relevant State iAwards event. Events are held in May, and details will be made available on this website when tickets become available. These events provide an excellent opportunity for entrants to meet and build relationships with active investors, peers and like-minded technological enthusiasts.
Further networking opportunities are readily available at the National iAwards Gala Dinner, widely recognised as the premier technological awards event in Australia.
Access to highly skilled judges
The iAwards has an excellent reputation when it comes to selecting rising stars and viable innovations. For example, our judges selected Atlassian in 2012 for their JIRA Service Desk. Each year the judge’s panel is refreshed and only highly skilled judges are invited on the panel.

- State and/or National iAward or merit award and trophy or certificate
