It’s only six weeks til entries close for the Telstra-TJA Christopher Newell Prize for Telecommunications and Disability.

The prize of $20 000 will be awarded to the author of the best original paper published by the Telecommunications Journal of Australia that demonstrates the tangible benefits that an innovative use of telecommunications technology can deliver in assisting individuals with disabilities.

The prize recognises and commemorates the ground-breaking work of the late Revd Canon Dr Christopher Newell AM within the telecommunications industry from 1990 to 2008 in representing the needs of people with disability.
