The 2017 national awards event incorporating the Pearcey Medal and Pearcey Hall of Fame awards together with the Pearcey National Entrepreneur Award, was held on Thursday evening 2 November in Sydney - the Pearcey Foundation joined with the ACS for a combined gala national awards event incorporating the Pearcey Awards with the ACS National Disruptor Awards.
Each year the Pearcey Foundation makes awards to outstanding individuals. The awards and previous winners of each award are listed in subsections below. The awardees are selected by various state based and national committees. Nominations can be received at any time.
There are two main categories of awards:
- Lifetime ICT achievement and contribution - Pearcey Medal and Pearcey Hall of Fame
- Entrepreneurial ICT achievement and contribution - Pearcey National Entrepreneur Award and the Pearcey State Awards
These awards are presented at special events recognised in the ICT industry as "good news" occasions and attended by the most influential decision makers in the industry. These events are generously supported by sponsors and new sponsors are always welcome!
The Pearcey Foundation is delighted that Data61 at CSIRO sponsored our 2017 Pearcey Medal and Hall of Fame Awards, and greatly appreciates their fifteen years of continuous support of our national awards programs.
