Pearcey Hall Of Fame

The Pearcey Hall of Fame recognises individuals who have made very significant lifetime contributions into one or more of Australia's ICT research, industry, or professional development.


The Pearcey Hall of Fame is a yearly award which recognises three outstanding individuals in the Australian ICT industry. One of these is the Pearcey Medallist for that year.

The Hall of Fame very much recognises the personal efforts of the inductees, honouring their endeavours, dedication, and outstanding contributions to Australia's and the world's ICT industry and research.


Nominations can be received at any time.

The National Awards Process details the criteria and procedures used in the judging evaluation.

Sponsors for the National Awards and National presentation are always welcome.
