The 2012 Australia & New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs), a collaboration between auDA and InternetNZ, are open for entries from the 1st June to 31st July.

We encourage all organisations, businesses and individuals that have made significant contributions to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand to enter.

Entries are invited in six categories:

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

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Canberra on 10th October, 2012 and 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 an $AUD2500 cash prize for eligible entrants.

2011 ANZIA Award winner Lyndsey Goulding, on behalf of The Australian Lions Drug Awareness Foundation's youth anti-drugs initiative “Tune In, Not Out,” said “Entering the ANZIAs really made us stop and think. It made us think about what we’re delivering and how we intend to make a difference. Winning the award gave all the young people that helped with the site some recognition for their work which made it all the more rewarding.”
