2017 Vic iawards winners

Victoria's leading digital technology innovators were recognised last night at the Australian Information Industry Association's State iAwards, sponsored by the Victorian Government.

Entrants competed in five core award categories comprising Business Services, Community Services, Consumer Markets, and Industrial and Primary Services.

Entrants were also recognised for additional contributions – as Startup of the Year, Research and Development Project of the Year, Infrastructure and Platform Innovations of the Year, Big Data/Machine Learning Innovation of the Year, and the inaugural Victorian Diversity Award.

An independent panel selected by the AIIA judged all nominations.

Winners and merit recipients across all categories will go on to represent Victoria and compete at the National iAwards.
