It’s that time of year again. Yes, the Women in Media Awards for 2017 are fast approaching and there’s no time like the present to get your nominations in.

And this year – along with all the traditional categories that cover our wonderful industry – three new ones have been introduced to spice things up and reach even more women, and those working for the benefit of women in the industry today. And we’re here to tell you how to make a splash if you’ve got your eyes on one of these gongs.

The first new category is Male Champion of Change, to recognise the men throughout the media landscape that support and champion female progression.

CRITERIA FOR MALE CHAMPION OF CHANGE:

  • An outline of the significant contribution the entrant has made to the retention, progression, satisfaction or development of individuals or groups of females within their organisation and/or the profession (500 words – 40 points)
  • A brief profile of the nominee, including significant achievements and accomplishments of note during their time with their organisation (500 words – 30 points)
  • Two individual references of no more than 500 words each, from appropriate staff members detailing their own experiences with the nominee (1,000 words – 15 points each)

The second is for the Best Ad Campaign that champions the equality cause for women in society. This newly-created category aims to recognise campaigns which champion the equality cause and contribute to the promotion of women.

  • Evidence of the quality of execution and integration in multiple media channels (200 words – 30 points)
  • Demonstrate evidence of its effectiveness and success in targets set out by the brief (200 words – 30 points)
