The winners of the 2015 Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) have been announced at a glittering luncheon at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney in front of a 350-strong crowd. The award winners and highly commended were revealed at these, the fourth annual WIICTA awards, in seven hotly-contested categories: Achievement, Rising Star, Shining Star, Entrepreneur, Innovation, Technical, and Community. A Lifetime Achievement award - not open to nomination, but chosen by ARN president and Publisher, Susan Searle, ARN Associate Editor, Jennifer O'Brien, and IT veteran and ARN Hall of Fame Ross Cochrane - was also revealed. This year, there was a 143 per cent increase in applicants from last year’s awards (200 nominations compared to 82 in 2014).
