Incite Awards deadline extended

Incite Awards judges have granted an extension to 16th April for applications this year.

The longest running (now in its 30th year) IT Awards this side of the Mississippi is allowing you a little while longer to get your applications in.

Rather than April 9th, the new deadline has been pushed back to Fri 16th April.

As Incite Awards Chair Niamh Toohey said in an announcement:

The awards program is committed to showcasing WA technology and amazing digital solutions, so the INCITE Awards Committee wanted to provide the much needed extra time to submit your entries so that we can help put a spotlight and showcase your innovation locally (via our digital tech conference and Gala Awards Presentation Night in July, media opportunities, content marketing, Masterclasses and more).
