Seeking recognition in the field of excellence for one of your recent projects? It might not be the Oscars, or even the Logies, but nominations for the iAwards are open this week.

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) iAwards seek to recognise outstanding Australian information and communication technology (ICT) innovators of the year open to all dev shops big and small.

According to the organisers the iAwards has expanded from previous years to a two-tier approach with state and territory winners going on to compete at national level, where they will present to a judging panel and compete against winners from other states and territories.

“Entry to the 2008 iAwards provide independent recognition of ICT excellence and exposes participants to important audiences including industry peers, competitors and new customers whilst showcasing their innovations at a local, and possibly national and international level.” said Ms Sheryle Moon, Chief Executive Officer, AIIA in a statement released by the organisation.

This year the awards will be presented in Melbourne as part of the National Technology Week and culminating in the industry dinner scheduled for May 28. Nominations close March 7 and further information can be found at the AIIA Web site.

Good luck!
