IN PICTURES: 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards - Winners and speakers, Pt 1 (+31 photos)

​On the night of nights, there are no losers. ARN congratulates all the finalists and the nominees. All are winners and leaders in their own right. However, there can only be one winner in each category (usually). Here are the recipients.​ And a collection of photos of the night's two main speakers: ARN president and publisher, Susan Searle, and Microsoft A/NZ managing director, Pip Marlow.
