The ANZIAs are a collaboration between auDA and InternetNZ and recognise outstanding achievement in five categories: Diversity; Information; Innovation; Internet Access & Digital Skills; and Security & Privacy.
auDA CEO Chris Disspain said “The ANZIAs have established a positive tradition of recognising the achievements of Australians and New Zealanders who use the Internet to benefit the community in innovative ways.”
