    ​And then there was the 2015 ARN IT Industry Awards After Party - some were still going at 4am, others, well, they had departed a wee bit earlier. Well quite a bit earlier, truth be told. Highlights included a whole bunch of people bustin' up some fine moves on the dance floor. In fact, a whole lotta shakin' went down. They say every picture tells a story - certainly, some of these do. Photos by SAM BARNES.​

    ​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.

    The fifth Hall of Fame Inductees Lunch was held at The Studio at the top of Sydney Tower with its panoramic views of the city and suburbs. It was hosted by ARN President and Publisher, Susan Searle. Seventeen inductees attended the highly popular and memorable lunch this year for three hours of fine food, networking, discussion and several wine tastings. A strong 50-minute discussion focusing on current trends and directions within the channel was a highlight of the day. A toast was raised in memory of industry stalwart and former AIIA CEO, the late Ian Birks, who passed away recently.

  • 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards: Nominations hit 460 smashing the old record

    The lines are well and truly closed, the nominations for the 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards are all in, the ARN number crunchers have been at work, and it is with great pride that we can announce that this year nominations totalled ... wait for it ... 460. This smashed the previous record of 278 set last year by an incredible 182 - an increase of 65 per cent.

  • 2015 ARN ICT Industry Awards: Nominations closed; yet another record

    Yes, nominations for the 2015 ARN ICT industry Awards have closed. As I write the ARN staff are already sorting through this year's massive haul of nominations. And there's no doubt that it is a record but not just any record. This year, with final figures to come, nominations have smashed last year's mark of 278 and jumped at least another 30 per cent.
