Nominate for the Australian Government Digital Awards

8 August 2019

Celebrate government digital services in Australia and reward the best practitioners in the public sector at the Digital Awards. Nominations close 16 August 2019.

Have you built an incredible digital product or service that people want to use? Used a game-changing methodology or approach? Worked with industry or another agency to create something amazing? Know someone in the public sector who’s made an outstanding commitment to digital transformation?

Across Australia, talented digital practitioners are making services simple, clear and fast. We want to recognise and celebrate the many successes happening across all tiers of government.

At the state and territory level, access to government services is becoming easier. Many local governments across Australia are creating great digital products and services, such as smart parking systems, and apps that help you get home from work quicker. We also have world leading services such as Airport SmartGates, myTax and the growth of myGov.

The Digital Awards and Digital Summit

To recognise and celebrate digital success and achievements, we’re hosting the first Australian Government Digital Awards on 3 October 2019, to coincide with our first Digital Summit. Awards are open for nomination across several categories, and close Friday 16 August 2019.

If you’re nominating for an Award, or even if you don’t feel quite ready for that, we’d love to see you at the Digital Summit, where you’ll learn and hear more about what’s happening in digital.

Types of Digital Awards

We’re presenting 9 awards across 3 categories: outstanding digital product or service, excellence in partnership and individual contribution.

By finding and celebrating the best from around Australia, we’re showing the importance of digital in transforming government services. We can remake government interaction with iterative, user-centred design to make it faster and easier for everyone.
