The annual Australian Web Industry Association’s (AWIA) Awards were held last night in Sydney. This was the culmination of a number of state finals held in the previous month. The Awards recognise achievement and innovation by web agencies over the last year.
Media Access Australia supports the Awards and is a sponsor of the Government category. Our project manager Dr Scott Hollier was one of team of experts who assessed the accessibility of each nominated website.
Accessibility, which in past years had its own award, was a strong theme through the ceremony, advocated passionately by AWIA Chairman Bret Treasure. He told the audience that accessibility was a key criterion for judging and that all of the chosen entries had to have some notable levels of accessibility to eligible.
