We’re seeing digital teams continue to push the boundaries with what’s possible and modify existing technologies to solve the world’s most pressing issues.

Here’s how it works

The Australian Web Awards moves through three phases every year, which are:

  1. Entries are invited for a period of time (typically one month) in February of the award year
  2. When entries close, judging commences, and will run for upwards of a month, during March
  3. And lastly, finalists are announced in April to coincide with the release of information for our annual Edge of the Web conference, held the day before the Awards Gala event.

Once you’ve submitted your entry, it needs to pass through two stages:
An initial check to make sure entries meet the awards guidelines, then a second stage of rigourous judging.
