The 2017 iAwards demonstrated that innovation is alive and well in Australia! Innovation, risk-taking and exploring new horizons are embedded in Australia’s DNA and the work of the finalists is an inspiration to us all.

The iAwards show innovation is happening in all quarters of our economy, from start-ups, private enterprise, community services, academia, and even in the public sector. Some of our major winners are well positioned to transform traditional sectors, such as construction, agriculture, and healthcare, which will be crucial if Australia is to remain globally competitive over the coming years.

Australia’s technology companies and innovators are one of Australia’s key competitive advantages in securing our position on the global stage. Therefore, we must showcase at every opportunity and recognise the important contribution they make! We congratulate all 2017 iAwards winners who are helping to shape Australia’s future industries.

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the iAwards, so we are extra excited to see what our iAwards entrants will bring to the innovation stage. We also look forward to celebrate this important milestone together with you; 25 years of innovation!
