The annual Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs) acknowledge those who excel in making the Internet a more inclusive, accessible and safe place.

Now in its 7th year, 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.

For the first time this year, people can nominate another organisation for the positive contribution that its online initiative or presence has made to the Internet.

The six ANZIA categories are:

  • Diversity
  • Innovation
  • Information
  • Access and digital skills
  • Security and 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 Sunshine Coast-based The Creative Collective, was honoured to receive an ANZIA, saying it helped “build the profile and credibility of our 12-week program as well as our own company’s profile.”

Nominations close on 15 May 2015. For more details visit
