The finalists for the 2022 Australia Post Online Retail Industry Awards are here. The annual event, hosted by Online Retailer and Australia Post, aims to highlight the leading retailers in the country. Find a full list of finalists below!

Last year’s event was hosted virtually, but this year it’s back – held in person in the Grand Ballroom at the ICCC in Sydney.

“Considering the last two years we have had and some of the incredible digital transformations we have seen across the retail landscape, this year’s finalists and winners are really going to showcase the agility, creativity and drive for results that so many people have in the retail industry,” shared Matt Smith, the Event Director for Online Retailer and ORIAS Judge.

“It is very exciting to be back in person to celebrate all the incredible work that has been done over the last year in the retail space and celebrate not only this year’s winners and finalists, but also 2021’s winners who missed out on a physical event last year.”

Previous winners of the event include Booktopia, TinyMe, Winning Appliances and many others. This is the 13th year of the ORIAS, now with more award categories than ever.

Judges this year include the Head Judge, Peter Knock (NORA) and supplementary judges, Rose Yip (Australia Post), Emma Sharley (Sharley Consulting), Matt Newell (The General Store), Louisa Simpson (Practical eCommerce Consulting), Mark Baarste (markbaarste.com) and Matt Smith (Online Retailer).
