In a year when the industry has seen a huge influx of creative talent, GizMODO Australia has chosen to select its 2017 winners from among its staff of around 100, who have been working in the creative industries for more than two decades.
We are incredibly proud to welcome the 2017 winners, and our thanks go out to all of the talented individuals who have stepped up to take on this incredible challenge.
The awardees are among a number of notable Australian companies who have made significant impact in the digital space over the past year, and the fact that they have all made significant contributions to the field is a testament to their talent.
As GizModo Australia’s award-winning editorial team has grown, so too has our staff’s skill set.
In fact, we have now grown to be one of the largest editorial teams in the world.
The winners, chosen based on our analysis of over 10,000 submissions, were chosen based largely on our commitment to quality and our commitment, and in many cases, our ability to support the editorial team with editorial direction and content production.
While we recognise that there is no shortage of talented writers and photographers, we also recognise that not everyone has the same expertise and experience as the team.
We hope that you can see why we are proud to be recognised by this year’s GizMAGAZINE Awards.
Our staff has grown tremendously over the years, with many of them coming on board with our flagship magazine in 2015.
However, many of the key roles have changed.
In the digital realm, the digital landscape is so vast that it has become harder and harder for journalists to remain on-board with the publishing process.
While our editorial team is working hard to continue to innovate and grow, there is a sense that the publishing model is changing.
The digital environment has changed significantly in the past five years, and some of the changes have been dramatic.
The changes are so drastic that it is difficult to find a single editor that does not have a significant digital background and a background in publishing.
We recognise that some people may not feel the need to work in a new field, or are just simply not comfortable with the process.
That is why we recognise the value of being able to recognise the talent of those who have already been part of our editorial crew for many years.
While the selection of our 2017 winners has been made to reflect the changing digital landscape, we hope that this year we have a number that are able to stand out in the field.
For our 2017 award-winners, we asked the talented team of editors, photographers, designers and writers from around the country to share their experience of working in digital, and to provide a personal example of their work.
The list of the 2017 finalists is as follows:GizMODOSAustralia.comTheGizModos Awards will be presented on Sunday, February 16 at 7:00pm at the Royal Theatre in Melbourne, and you can watch a live stream of the awards on Gizmagazine’s website.

Graphic design has always been an art form.
But for the last decade or so, the profession has been moving away from the traditional design principles of grid and solid colors to more flexible, dynamic designs.
This article shows how to use those principles to create beautiful and useful websites.
