Australian Not-for-Profit Technology Awards Finalists Announced
Thursday, 12th April 2018 at 8:24 am

Sea rescue volunteers, Indigenous storytellers and campaigners for more awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorders are among the finalists in this year’s Australian Not-for-Profit Technology Awards.

The awards, which take place in Brisbane’s CBD on 3 May as part of the annual Connecting Up Not-for-Profit technology conference, reward the best uses – and users – of technology from Australia’s not-for-profit sector.

The addition of a new Best Digital Storytelling by an Indigenous Australian category to this year’s awards means seven categories will be up for grabs during a gala dinner at the Hilton Hotel, Brisbane.

The new Digital Storytelling Award is sponsored and supported by Connecting Up’s partner organisation, Indigenous Community Television (ICTV), which will also have two of its board members, Henry Augustine and Neil Turner present a keynote address at the main conference on Friday 4 May.

They will join a high-profile panel of keynotes that includes World Vision Australia’s Tim Costello, who will deliver the opening keynote address on Thursday 3 May.

The conference and awards are a key part of Connecting Up’s work to support best practice technology use in the not-for-profit sector, and comes hot on the heels of a recent report Digital Technology in the Not-for-Profit Sector by Connecting Up and fellow Australian not for profit, technology enablers Infoxchange.

That report shows that underinvestment and lack of planning in the area of IT are major issues for Australian not for profits, especially organisations who depend on IT for successful delivery of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
