2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards: And the finalists are ...

Record number of entries - 460 - sees incredibly tough competition

ARN is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards. Competition was very tough across the eight categories, with a new record of entries (460). It was a great result and nearly doubled the number of nominations from 2014.

ARN was particularly impressed with the number of entrants in the new award category, Cloud, which attracted a host of players from across the channel vying to secure a place on the short list and to ultimately win the Cloud vendor, distributor and partner awards.

And a special thanks to all our judges for their time and enthusiasm.

ARN would also like to congratulate - and thank - the many companies that entered but didn't make the final five. The competition was so tight that some entrants missed out by only one or two votes.

Finally, congratulations to all our finalists and we hope to see you at the Celebration Dinner on Thursday, September 10, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.
