Artificial intelligence (AI) has rapidly permeated every industry, while small to medium enterprises (SMEs) have invested in AI or are planning to in the next five years.

In light of this, Lawyers Weekly’s parent company, Momentum Media, is marking a significant milestone by launching the new Momentum Media Australian AI Awards 2024 to provide national recognition to professionals and organisations in the legal services industry who have transformed business operations through the use of their AI solutions.

We urge all businesses and individuals who have developed cutting-edge AI tools to throw their hats in the ring at the inaugural awards.


Submit an entry or nominate a worthy colleague or business by Friday, 30 August 2024, for your chance to secure this coveted accolade.

The program will culminate in a black-tie gala awards ceremony on Thursday, 7 November 2024, at the Four Seasons, Sydney. Click here to book your tickets.

There are six individual and 17 group submissions-based categories for candidates to choose from.

Individual categories include AI Leader of the Year, AI Software Engineer of the Year, and AI Female Leader of the Year, while legal services providers can enter into the AI Innovator – Legal Services group category.

There are also a number of group categories available for businesses in accountancy services, aerospace, cyber security, consumer banking, defence, the materials sector, mortgage broking, property investment, real estate, and the utilities sector.

The inaugural Momentum Media Australian AI Awards will shine the spotlight on professionals and organisations whose solutions have bolstered the Australian economy.

Artificial intelligence solutions are evolving at lightning speed while forming a core element of service delivery to customers and streamlining efficiencies within businesses. The Momentum Media Australian AI Awards reaffirms the role of organisations and professionals in advancing the AI sector.

Winning a trophy at the Momentum Media Australian AI Awards could distinguish organisations from their competitors when attracting and retaining the best talent while providing a platform for them to showcase their solutions to the wider market.

At the same time, individual winners could cement their position as one of the best and brightest professionals in the industry and propel their careers in the AI sector.

Judged by a panel of innovators, business executives, entrepreneurs, and academics, the awards will provide peer-reviewed national recognition of your capabilities in developing groundbreaking AI solutions and passion for driving the sector forward, and build your reputation for excellence.
