Help inspire Australia’s web industry
- a call for judges.
The Australian Web Awards announces the call for judges for its 5th annual national Web Awards competition. The Australian Web Awards is the standards-defining competition that sets industry benchmarks based on the eight criteria of a successful Web site. Judges will consist of a select group of Internet professionals who have direct experience designing and managing Web sites, including members of the interactive creative directors, site designers, acessibility consultants, content providers and webmasters - with an in-depth understanding of the current state-of-the-art in Web site development and technology.
"The Australian Web Awards is different from other Web site award programs as we just don't focus on name recognition and design. For the last 4 years (as a national awards program), industry professionals have volunteered to provide the backbone of our award program and helped the top Australian Web sites get the recognition they deserve. As an Australian Web Awards judge, you are helping to set the standard of excellence for all web site development. Judging challenges you by having you visit and review web sites that you normally would not visit. Being a judge helps develop a critical eye to the many facets of leading-edge web development." - Awards Chairperson Helen Burgess.
Judging for the 2012 Australian Web Awards will take place throughout August 2012, with finalists announced in September and winners at a gala cocktail function hosted by our major sponsor Ilisys in mid-October. Some of the past judges have been:
- Chris Mills (UK)
- Russ Weakley (NSW)
- Oliver Weidlich (NSW)
- Jenn Lukas (USA)
- Simon Pascal Klein (ACT)
- Cameron Adams (NSW)
