2016 ARN ICT Industry Awards: And the finalists are...

See who made the shortlist

ARN is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2016 ARN ICT Industry Awards. Competition was very tough across the eight categories, with a record number of entries.

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

We would also like to thank all our judges for their time and enthusiasm.

Finally, congratulations to all our finalists and we hope to see you at the Celebration Dinner on Thursday, September 15, at the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour Hotel.
