The state’s most innovative concepts were celebrated at the annual Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) 2021 South Australia and Northern Territory iAwards, held virtually on 30 June 2021.

iAwards Winner - Annual SA & NT iAwards 2021

Entrants competed in the award categories of Not-for-Profit and Community, Government and Public Sector, Business and Industry Solutions, Technology Platform, Start-ups, Student, as well as Cross Category nominations.

The ceremony included an announcement of the South Australian Premier's iAward for Innovation in the Public Sector, recognising digital innovation and transformation within the public sector.

This award was won by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet’s Website Design System team for their Website Design System, which provides agencies with an easy-to-use and cost-effective way of creating accessible government websites.

The department’s Online Forms team, in partnership with HCL Technologies (DWS), also won in the category of ‘Technology Platform Solution of the Year’ for the iApply platform used across the South Australian Government. This included the design and delivery of an online form that enables South Australian businesses to create their own COVID-Safe plans. Using the iApply platform, around 600 online forms have been built and used across 33 agencies.

All winning entrants will now compete at the National iAwards to be held later in the year.
