Finalists announced for the 2013 ARN ICT Awards

ARN is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2013 ARN ICT Awards. Competition was tough across the seven categories. ARN was particularly impressed with the number of entrants in the new award category, Homegrown Innovators, whereby a varied group of nominees put their best foot forward in both the Service Provider of the Year and the Software Developer of the Year awards.

Congratulations to all our worthy finalists and we hope to see you at the Celebration Dinner on Wednesday September 18 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.
