Will you be our next winner?

You spent weeks understanding your client’s needs, pitching your design, explaining about focusing on the user experience – only to find the client needs the site completed next week and the content is still to be created! No? Not how it happened for you?

Sure, we would all love to have the time to work step-by-step through the sometimes complicated and convoluted process of building that award-winning website. But most of the time we simply have to do our best.

The AWIA Australian Web Awards gives you the chance to be a winner. We recognise the craft and skill that makes a good site an excellent one. Most of the time, the hard work is under the hood making the site look deceptively simple and straightforward. But with our panel of expert judges, we look under the hood and see exactly what you have done.

So, are you our next winner?

There is only one way to find out, and it is easy. Simply log on to and register. You will receive a log-in and this gives you access to the entry forms to enter your fantastic site in the 2016 Australian Web Awards. If you have entered before, just use your previous login details.

But there’s a catch – there is an entry fee. If you are a member of AWIA – the Australian Web Industry Association - then your entry costs from $80. If you are not it costs a lot more. So why not join Australia’s premier web business professional association and be part of this exciting event. There’s nothing like a winners trophy for the meeting-room table to impress new clients!

All the details can be found on When there, check out our gallery of previous winners. In the Small Business category, the 2015 winner was built by Humaan. With summer on the way, this may be just the thing for you – but maybe put your website entry in before you get too absorbed in your boating dreams. Entries close on Friday 16 September.
