Nominations for the Australian Web Awards are now open, including the accessibility category.

Nominated websites will be judged on visual design, content, user experience, development and accessibility. The presence of accessibility, the practice of making content available to all users, is recognition of its growing importance in Australia’s web industry.  

With last year’s awards receiving around 100 entries, reviewing each website for accessibility is no easy task. The judging process is rigorous with a number of domain experts reviewing each nominated website.

In 2012, the Best Overall Accessibility Award was one by Love Freo, a blog about Fremantle, WA run by group of local volunteers.

The Australian Web Awards are open to websites and social media campaigns launched in the 2012/2013 financial year. Nominations close 24 August.
