Australian Web Awards
The Australian Web Awards are a showcase of outstanding work by web designers and developers. Nominations are open until around the beginning of September and are then judged by a diverse group of highly respected practitioners. The State Awards are run in the lead-up to a National final in November. If it validates and it’s accessible and it’s good, enter it.
