The History of the iAwards
For nearly 30 years, the Australian Information Industry Association. (AIIA) has been driving an innovation nation through their iAwards program.
The National Awards for Excellence through Information Technology, now the iAwards, was first held in 1993 alongside The Australian Financial Review and the Pearcey Foundation. The aim was to recognise public and private sector organisations that had achieved business excellence through the application of information technology. The AIIA quickly went on to hold the awards independently, expanding the program to state level and extending the competition to students.
The iAwards is now Australia’s longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, promoting excellence in the Australian digital ecosystem from the likes of Google Maps, Atlassian, Wotif and WiseTech Global.
