Our Australia colleagues at Allure are doing quite well for themselves. Congrats!

Allure Media continues to be recognised as Australia's most awarded tech publisher – with Lifehacker.com.au winning the 'Gold Logie' of tech journalism: Best Title honours at the 12th annual Australian IT Journalism awards last Friday evening. Kotaku.com.au also picked up Best Gaming Coverage for the fourth-straight year.

The gala ceremony was held at Luna Park's Crystal Ballroom and attended by almost 400 tech journalists, IT professionals and industry execs.

Lifehacker Australia's further major honours included Best Website (which went to sister-site Gizmodo last year) and, for the second year running, Lifehacker also took home Best Personal Technology Coverage.

Editor Angus Kidman received a Highly Commended award as Best Tech Industry Journalist, while journalist Chris Jager picked up Highly Commended honours as Best Columnist. Lifehacker was also named a finalist across several additional categories, including Best Business Tech Coverage and Best Tech Industry Journalist.

Kotaku's editor, Mark Serrels, was recognised with a highly commended award for Best Gaming Journalist – missing out on top honours by just one point.

Kotaku Australia was nominated as finalist in Best Video for its fantastic E3 2013 video coverage from Ben and Mark in the local team.

Gizmodo was selected as a finalist in almost every major category, including Best Personal Technology Coverage and Best Website, with editor Luke Hopewell and journalist Campbell Simpson both named Best Technology Reviewerfinalists. Elsewhere, Business Insider Australia's Chris Pash was named a finalist for Best Industry Journalist, rounding out Allure Media's unprecedented 26 finalist nominations.
