After winning state-based awards in the Startup, Education and Small Business categories in the Australian Web Awards, on Friday I travelled to Perth to proudly represent Newism for the announcement of the national winners.
Bret Treasure, the Chairman of the Australian Web Industry Association was an entertaining and knowledgable emcee. He read out the judges comments for each award nomination, which was something I really appreciated. I heard that mentioned by several people I spoke to on the night.
The quality of submissions was world class. We certainly didn’t make the long trip to Perth feeling confident of winning, because the competition (particularly from Perth-based agencies) was fierce. It was a pleasure being recognised amongst such excellent agencies, and it was great to meet everyone.
The team at Newism would like to say a huge thanks to the organisers and volunteers from the Australian Web Industry Association for putting on such an excellent event.
We’ll certainly be back next year!
