Thirteen organisations in the public and private sectors have been recognised in this year's ANZIA awards.

 

The 2011 Australian and New Zealand Internet Awards (the ANZIAs) were announced tonight. The awards mark "exceptional contributions" to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand.
