Update: The deadline for entries to 2021 Australian IoT Awards has been extended and will close at 11pm on September 28, 2021.

For the past five years, the IoT Awards have judged standout Internet of Things (IoT) projects from the likes of CSIRO’s Data61, NSW Government, NSW Health, City of Melbourne, NBN Co, City of Perth, Newcrest Mining, NNNCo and University of Technology Sydney. Last year, there were more than 100 entrants from Australian government, industry and academia.

The awards recognise that real-time data is increasingly important to industry, government and citizens, assisting our response to crises and enabling industry to compete.

They provide an opportunity for Australian government, business, research and industry organisations and other entities, and individuals, to gain recognition for innovation and impact.

Past winners include the City of Gold Coast, which won praise in 2020 for its systemic approach to the implementation of IoT systems to underpin activities across the council. This included the rollout of connectivity for everything from public safety to bushfire and flood monitoring, a data and insights platform, and cost effective water monitoring.
