Enter the 2024 iAwards for your shot at national and international recognition!

Entries to the 2024 iAwards are open

Australia’s peak body for innovation technology, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), is thrilled to open entries to its annual iAwards program. This year marks 31 years of iAwards, with entrants once again expected raise the bar in showcasing brilliant Australian tech innovations that make a positive impact on a community, national or global scale.

The iAwards provide a unique opportunity for innovators to grow and expand their business for national and international success. In 2023, six Australian National iAwards winners submitted their innovations to the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Awards and each one came away winners or merit award recipients.

This year’s theme is: Shaping Our Future. It points to the huge potential of Australia’s innovation and technological spaces to make a positive transformational impact on our lives.

Do you have a tech innovation that’s making a positive impact? Then bring it to the iAwards for a shot at national and international recognition.

Enter the 2024 iAwards. Entries close Tuesday 2 April
