2021 CAUDIT Awards closing date

We understand the start of the year is a busy time for many as they plan workloads and determine priorities for the year ahead. We also acknowledge that people will be taking time off during the Easter Break. With this in mind, we have extended the closing date for the 2021 CAUDIT Awards nominations by an additional 10 days to 9am AEST, Monday 19 April.

Information on how to enter can be found here.

Submit a nomination here.

These Awards recognise, celebrate and promote the outstanding achievements and innovation of staff working in IT in CAUDIT member organisations, via the application of digital capabilities which positively transformed the experience of students, academics and professional staff during 2020.  

We all know 2020 was a challenging and disruptive year for many individuals, organisations and higher education and research in general. There was massive change in the way we live and work, adapting to a new normal in an uncertain, fast moving and dynamic world environment.

However 2020 also provided a wealth of opportunity for growth, innovation and reflection – a time to reset, refocus, reprioritise and move forward with positivity and a new sense of purpose and possibility. We needed to find ways to not only survive, but to thrive in this brave new world.

What are some of the ground-breaking projects you or your colleagues worked on that helped your business unit or organisation through this time of disruption and change? 

Who were the CAUDIT Leadership Institute (CLI) graduates who stepped forward and demonstrated positive leadership while steering their team, others or some aspect of your business through uncharted territory?

Give these projects, and the individuals and teams behind them, the recognition and respect they deserve by nominating them for a 2021 CAUDIT Award.

There are five award categories to choose from, so start thinking about your colleagues who made a real difference and nominate them for a 2021 CAUDIT Award.

If you need a little bit of inspiration to get started, have a look at the CAUDIT Awards Highlight video for 2019 below and check out our past award recipients, finalists and sponsors via the left-hand side navigation links.

Finalists will be recognised and category recipients announced at the 2021 CAUDIT Awards Ceremony which will be held virtually on 29 July.
