Enter the AWIA Australian Web Awards


Entries are now open – get your entry in before Friday 16 September

The annual AWIA Australian Web Awards are now open. These prestigious awards are open to AWIA members and recognise the fantastic work being done each year by AWIA members across the country. If you are not an AWIA member – don’t worry, you can join and enter the awards at the same time. To enter, go to webawards.com.au/register.

The Awards will be judged by an expert panel of your peers. The judges will select State-based winners from which our national winners will be chosen. The awards will be presented at local events in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, with the venue for our National Awards Ceremony to be determined once entries close.

Previous winners of Australian Web Awards have ranged from large organisations to single developers – so don’t think you cannot win! If you think your site is great (and frankly, who doesn’t!) then submit an entry. Winners receive a certificate and a trophy, a ‘winner’ tag for your website, and bragging rights for the year. Best of all, we will showcase your winning site on the Australian Web Awards website.

You cannot win if you do not enter.

Sites can be entered in one of the following ten categories:

  • Personal
  • Startup
  • Small Business
  • E-commerce
  • Commercial
  • Government
  • Education
  • Not for Profit
  • Innovation
  • Social Media

Full details of the judging criteria, criteria weighting and required validation guidelines are detailed on the Australian Web Awards website: http://www.webawards.com.au


And there’s more:

This year we are introducing Excellence in Criteria’ awards. These ‘Best in Show’ awards will be presented to sites that demonstrate excellence in at least one of: User interface design; User experience design; Content; Development, and Accessibility.

The top award is the McFarlane Prize: our national prize for excellence, which will be given to the most outstanding site overall.

So – go to the website, check out the criteria for each category and register. We will ask you to do self-validation of your site but that will help you just as much as it helps us. And here’s a tip – check out some of our previous winners. If you think your site is better than these then we need to see it!

Entries close on Friday 16 September.
