Accessibility a judging criteria for Australian Web Awards


The Australian Web Awards 2011 is now open for submissions from Australian websites or mobile applications that have been newly created or significantly redesigned in the last financial year, with accessibility a key consideration for judges.

Run since 2009 by the Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA), the awards showcase outstanding work by Australian web designers and developers in diverse categories.

Accessibility constitutes one of the key selection criteria that judges use to evaluate sites in both stages of the competition. It is considered as part of an inclusive design process and all submissions must have a reasonable degree of compliance. In addition, a special prize is awarded for the Best Overall Accessibility in the final stage.
