The awards are open to Australian companies or the Australian subsidiaries of overseas parent companies. The innovation can be a new product or service or a new approach to business. Entries will be judged on originality and their understanding of user needs.

“In keeping with AMDA Foundation’s mission to promote industry development, the awards are designed to encourage and reward excellence by Australian companies and emerging engineers and scientists.”
