Western Australia’s thriving ICT community will celebrate 31 years of local technology and innovation when the annual INCITE Awards return to The Westin Perth on Friday, August 12, 2022.

Twenty-seven WA-based companies, organisations and education institutions will be showcased as they compete for the top gongs in categories including Innovating Government, Social Impact, Startup of the Year, Transformative Business Solution and Research & Innovation.

Led by organiser the Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Alliance (WAITTA), the Awards are the state’s premier ICT event and have been putting WA tech on the map since 1991.

WAITTA President, Colin Janssen, said, “From climate change and mental health to urban farming and regional healthcare, the diversity and genius of our entrants’ thinking and the challenges they tackle continue to exceed our expectations year after year.

We may be a small population, but the strength of this year’s cohort demonstrates that the ideas coming out of Perth are worthy of anything coming out of Sydney or Silicon Valley.

We couldn’t be prouder to shine a light on the achievements of our state’s brilliant local innovators and to share just how much WA is punching above its weight on August 12.”

Hosted by MC Gerry Gannon, this year’s gala guests will enjoy a delicious three course dinner menu and live entertainment from Fluid Groove the Band, hear insights on the state of WA innovation from Minister Stephen Dawson and Councillor Rebecca Gordon, and of course, celebrate all of the evening’s big winners.

For this year’s category and merit winners the accolades won’t stop there, with the Awards presenting a pathway to the national iAwards, the Asia Pacific ICT Awards (APICTA) and more.
