It’s widely accepted that creating a compelling and engaging online presence is a critical path for success, across sectors. From start-ups using the Internet in new and innovative ways, to third sector organizations optimizing their stakeholder engagement, through to regional communities creating websites to share local information.

The Internet can benefit everyone.

The Australia & New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs), co-created by .au Domain Administration (auDA) and InternetNZ, is an annual awards event which acknowledges those who excel in making the Internet a more inclusive, accessible and safe place. Now in its seventh year, the ANZIAs celebrate the achievements of organizations, businesses and individuals that have made significant contributions to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand.

This year, for the first time, we are allowing people to nominate another organization for the positive contribution that their online initiative or presence has made to the Internet.

The six ANZIA categories are:

  • Diversity
  • Innovation
  • Information
  • Access & Digital Skills
  • Security & Online Safety
  • The Leonie Dunbar Memorial Award for Community Websites

Previous ANZIA winner The Song Room is a national not-for-profit organization that brightens the futures of Australia’s most disadvantaged children with tailored, high-quality music and arts programs, delivered in partnership with schools across the country.

Caroline Aebersold, CEO of The Song Room said “Winning an ANZIA is a great way to acknowledge all the incredible work our team has done and it helps get the word out about the ARTS:LIVE project and the benefits it offers all teachers.”

You can enter here now.

Entries close on Friday 15 May 2015. Winners will be announced at a gala dinner 27 August 2015, Auckland – travel will be provided.


Helen Hollins is the General Manager, Communications at .au Domain Administration Ltd.
