“We’re keen to see the latest ICT product and services, developed by professionals or organisations, which demonstrate true innovation and have the potential to, or are already, adding value and driving productivity. ICT is everywhere and we are looking forward to seeing the next wave of innovations and future thinking at this year’s iAwards,” commented Wayne Fitzsimmons, Chairman, The Pearcey Foundation and iAwards host partner.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that the 2013 iAwards program has evolved in the same way as the ever changing ICT industry so that the new frontiers, where ICT innovation is adding value, are included and celebrated by the iAwards program,” Mr Fitzsimmons added.

As the only truly international ICT awards program in Australia, company winners of the 2013 iAwards will have the opportunity to compete with businesses from across the Asia Pacific region at the 2013 APICTA Awards (Asia Pacific ICT Awards) in Hong Kong.
