The Entry Process
iAwards entries are accepted from innovators across the whole Australian economy, whether you are an individual, a group, a government or private organisation, or a student. To understand the entry process after submiting an entry, more information is here.
For Western Australian innovators, the pathway is slightly different. You become eligible for the iAwards through entering the WAITTA Incite Awards. You can find out more about these awards by clicking here.
Preparing your entry
In order to ensure your entry stands out from the crowd, follow this helpful advice:
Choose your category
Firstly, entrants are asked to select a markets category based on the primary market for their innovation. Entrants are then encouraged to select an additional 1-2 categories from the 'cross categories', depending on which apply to the specific innovation. Click here for more information about the iAwards Categories.
As part of your submission, you will be asked to respond to the specific criteria for your selected categories.
Collect the necessary information
We will need the contact details for two referees, a project representative and a media/PR representative, so it would be useful to start collecting these details now. We also need you to tell us who is involved in the project e.g. team members, partner organisations etc. As part of your entry, you'll need to upload a video clip that succinctly encapsulates the innovation/project. Video clips are passed on to iAwards judges for consideration as a part of your entry. Videos should be no more than 60 seconds long, and while they should be as engaging and interesting as possible, there is no expectation they are professionally produced - clips filmed on smart phones or similar are encouraged.
