Supported by Samsung, Enex TestLab, Watterson Marketing Communications, Amazon Web Services, Atlassian, Optus and Apptio, this year’s Awards at Luna Park were attended by 300 individuals from the wider journalism, public relations and technology communities.


Speaking on the night as Best Journalist, Jackson Ryan said “genuinely The Lizzies have always been something that I’ve held quite dear so it’s incredible to be up here”, thanking his editor Mark Serrels and CNET for their support.


Accepting the Gold Lizzie for Best Title, The Australian Financial Review’s Paul Smith said “It means a lot because there is so much good journalism done and so many stories that are based around the very broad concept of technology. Technology is everything now. Technology is in every part of the newspaper that we all work for, and every facet of life.”
