Australia is a naturally creative country. Creative technology provides an opportunity to combine this natural creativity with cutting-edge technology to create efficient, productive and fun solutions and services across a wide range of industries.

The Creative Tech award at the 2022 InnovationAus Awards for Excellence celebrates the intersection between technology and the arts, design, media, entertainment, games and education.

The Creative Tech sector is rapidly growing in Australia, and it’s about much more than just NFTs. Australia has a world-renowned digital gaming sector which recently landed a refundable tax offset from the federal government.

For example, the Australian digital games industry contributed $226.5 million in revenue in 2021, up more than 20 per cent from the previous year. It’s also an exporting-based industry, with 83 per cent of revenue coming from overseas markets.
