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.
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.
Okay, you've got an extra 24 hours. Don't mess it up
Closes end Tuesday September 2nd.
FIRST: Enter your site.
SECOND: Join us at the 2014 Web Awards:
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.
Congratulations all: a great collegial atmosphere and really a lot of fun.
The personal category was won by John Cinquina.
Humaan also won the award for the Commercial category with Bonfire.
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.
Thanks to all judges, sponsors, entrants and helpers for your interest and selflessness. You are the right stuff.
Congratulations to Walker Designs for their wins in the Australian Web Awards:
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.
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 - [email protected] - and we'll do our best to provide helpful information.
