Get your dinner suit or party frock out: the Australian Web Awards are on Saturday, November 1st in Sydney at The Menzies. Tickets include a two-course dinner and cost $75 + the very reasonable fee that Eventbrite charge :p

State award presentations will be held in two states; here's the NSW booking link and here's the West Australian one. Those events cost $35 + fee and are also formal dress.

In other states, winners will be announced on October 9th at 8PM AEDT via the Awards EDM and this very website. Some entrants in those states are organising dinners or events to coincide with the announcement. Send us your safe-for-work photos!

All states & territories

All States of Australia (shapes)

I KNOW, RIGHT! Where's Tasmania?

In previous years, Northern Territory, ACT and Tasmania have been 'bundled' in with other larger states. This year, awards will be given in all states and mainland territories. Naturally, awards are only given where an entry meets the standard; being the only entrant in a category does not guarantee an award. All regional winners qualify to attend the national final in Sydney.

Get your judge on

No more bets ladies and gentlemen; the awards are closed and the judging is open.

We'll be in touch soon with details of the award night events.

May the best sites win and may you all receive the kudos you deserve.

Follow our gossip on twitter and our factual information on the award-winning newsletter. Okay, we made it up about the award.

24 hour extension

Okay, you've got an extra 24 hours. Don't mess it up smile

Closes end Tuesday September 2nd.

AWArds Karen Hollywood

The 2014 Australian Web Awards are OPEN.

And we’re open until midnight AEST, Monday September 1st.

You’ve done great work; now use it to impress your clients, acknowledge your people and dress up in a tux/frock.

These are the web industry’s own awards - judged by people who really know their onions.  Rewarding sites that meet web standards and best practice.

The entry process is straight-forward and allows you to upload screenshots and screen captures of your behind-the-scenes mastery. Even those who don’t win awards benefit from the discipline of entering a site. There are state awards in each category as well as a national final in Sydney.

Go to town. Make it part of what you do. And come along to the party.

National Winners

Congratulations all: a great collegial atmosphere and really a lot of fun.

The McFarlane Prize for excellence went to the Get on Track Challenge by Equilibrium. That site also won the Not for Profit category.

The personal category was won by John Cinquina.

The eCommerce category was won by Humaan for Main Peak.

Humaan also won the award for the Commercial category with Bonfire.

Revium won the Government category with Energy Made Easy.

Clever Starfish were a winner in Culture & Events for the Perth Theatre Trust.

In the Innovation category, the award went to 12Scan, a batch scanning application that automates the scanning, naming, indexing and storing of documents direct into a database or document management system. One judge described it as a great example of the web reaching into everyday objects.

Social Media was won by 303 Lowe and Clarity Communications for Celebrate WA.

And the Mobile category went to Razorfish, for Simply Send It; the Australia Post parcel despatch service.

Thanks to all judges, sponsors, entrants and helpers for your interest and selflessness. You are the right stuff.

National Awards Night

Celebrate the Web Industry's night of nights

The Australian Web Industry's night of nights is almost here. On Thursday 24th October, The Australian Web Awards will be presented at an event in Sydney during Web Directions South.

Book tickets here. Hurry, it's filling up fast.

Dress code is geek chic. Bring your partner, bring your team. Come and enjoy a few drinks and nibbles with us and celebrate the best websites created in Australia this year.

Honorable Mentions

This year we've given out some Honorable Mentions (as you can see from the posts below). These were awarded to sites that judges considered meritorious but not national finalists. Sites that won a state award are automatically national finalists.

We'll give all entrants a basic report after the national event and they'll be able to follow up to get more detail if they wish. Once that's done, honorees can ask us for additional feedback - info@webawards.com.au - and we'll do our best to provide helpful information.
