Microsoft has been a long-term supporter of the iAwards, an awards program for technology innovation in Australia. The iAwards recognise excellence in technology innovation across 18 different categories – including the Microsoft Start-Up Award for the most outstanding new ICT business.


If your innovation is delivering where it counts, we strongly encourage you to consider nominating your business for an award. It’s a great way to raise your business profile and establish independent recognition for the quality of your brand with customers, prospects and partners alike. Awards begin at the State and Territory level, with local winners going on to compete in the National iAwards, held to take place in Melbourne on 5 August. National winners go on to compete internationally at the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards. Applications close April 28 – with information sessions to be held in each state and territory shortly. Visit for more information, email the iAwards team or call 1300 665 145 for more information.
