ANZIAs open for pre-registrations

Media Release: ANZIAs open for pre-registrations

9 May 2011

InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) and .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) are proud to announce the launch of the 2011 Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (the ANZIAs).

Now in their third year, the ANZIAs are an annual event celebrating the achievements of organisations, businesses and individuals that have made significant contributions to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand.

ANZIA winners receive recognition as industry leaders, for setting new standards in making the Internet a more inclusive, accessible and safe place. The Awards also offer winners public and industry exposure, positive media coverage, networking opportunities, recognition of hard work for staff and volunteers and a $2500 cash prize for eligible entrants.

Entries are invited in six categories:

* Security and privacy
* Internet access & digital skills
* Innovation
* Information
* Diversity
* IPv6

auDA’s CEO, Chris Disspain, applauded the ANZIA’s ability to bring disparate stakeholders together. “The ANZIAs are not about recognising a narrow or obscure field of technical achievement, but rather recognise and reward people from all walks of life that use the Internet to enrich our collective cultural, social and economic experiences”, said Mr Disspain.

InternetNZ’s Chief Executive, Vikram Kumar agreed, “The Internet is a wonderful platform for innovation, delivering real value to people and businesses. The ANZIAs is a great way to know about these and to celebrate the achievements of passionate individuals and organisations.”

In their first two years, the ANZIAs have recognised the online achievements of a tremendously diverse range of organisations, including CanTeen, The National Library of New Zealand, the NSW Rape Crisis Centre, Deaf Aotearoa New Zealand, Hector’s World Limited, Darwin City Council’s - GRIND Youth Initiative and RSPCA Queensland.

The ANZIAs website is now open for pre-registrations. Interested parties can register to receive additional information about the history of the Awards and how-to-enter guidance. Applications open on 1 July and close on 31 August, with winners announced at a gala dinner in Melbourne on 17 October.
