Not for Profits across Australia are being encouraged to enter the annual ANZIA internet awards that showcase organisations that excel in making the Internet a more inclusive, accessible and a safe place.
“The ANZIAs celebrate the achievements of organisations, businesses and individuals that have made significant contributions to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand,” Chief Operations and Policy Officer for auDA, Jo Lim said.
“This year, for the first time, we are allowing people to nominate another organisation for the positive contribution that their online initiative or presence has made to the Internet.
“It’s widely accepted that creating a compelling and engaging online presence is a critical path for success, across sectors. From start-ups utilising the Internet in new and innovative ways, to third sector organisations optimising their stakeholder engagement, through to regional communities creating websites to share local information. The Internet can benefit everyone.”
The six ANZIA categories are:
• Access & Digital Skills
• Security & Online Safety
• The Leonie Dunbar Memorial Award for Community Websites
Previous ANZIA winner Caroline Aebersold, CEO of Not for Profit organisation 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."
Yvette Adams, founder of small business The Creative Collective, said the award helped "build the profile and credibility of our 12 week program as well as our own company's profile".
