IIA Net Visionary Awards

People like Mark Little and Silicon Republic CEO Ann O’Dea have been recognised at the Awards in the past.

Last year, O’Dea was given the Outstanding Contribution from an IIA Member Award for her work on the Women Invent Tomorrow campaign in highlighting the need for greater diversity in the technology industry and in particular encouraging young women to pursue STEM subjects in education and rewarding careers in technology and science.

This year, public votes decide the winners of a number of categories, including Best Website, Best Mobile App, Best Retail E-commerce, Best Social Media Campaign and Best Use Of Technology For Social Good.
