As a member of the Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA), Digital Tsunami contributed to the Australian Web Awards 2013, with stills photography and video coverage of the event.
The national ceremony was held at King’s Street Wharf in Sydney, where awards were presented to web developers across the country for the excellence of their work in a range of business sectors.

The criteria for a two-stage judging process* were:
- Accessibility Compliance, Site Performance, Site Validation

Founder of the AWIA and the Australian Web Awards, Bret Treasure, delivered an enthusiastic introductory speech on the Awards’ objective to promote the industry, to champion web standards, to acknowledge excellence, and to provide marketing advantage to companies working at the highest level. He exhorted all professional web developers to submit their best work to the 2014 awards.

Apart from documenting the evening, a short film is to be produced promoting the event for future years.
