WAITTA currently runs the following activities
WAITTA began as the WA IT&T Awards, a subcommittee of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) WA Branch, whose primary role was to underwrite the Awards program.
WAITTA began passing its winners through to the national iAwards, then run by a tripartite relationship between Pearcey Foundation, AIIA and the ACS.
WAITTA had a significant rebrand when the Award was renamed the INCITE Awards, reflecting incitement and innovation in ICT.
WAITTA seceded from the ACS in 2016 as an incorporated body, in full compliance with the original intention i.e. when WAITTA was sufficiently established, it would become an independent body.
WAITTA partnered with the Pearcey Foundation to provide a State award: the winner of which will be a finalist in the National Pearcey Awards.
WAITTA began passing individual State winners into the ACS National Digital Disruptors Awards. WAITTA also ran the inaugural Game Changer Awards in WA primary and secondary schools.
Alliance members start working on joint projects in a number of sectors and locations.
WAITTA has evolved over the past 26 years, reflecting the significant and accelerating changes in our industry and in the broader WA community.
