B&T is calling on all the successful, powerful, trailblazing women in the media industry. We want you!

Nominations are open now for the prestigious Women in Media Power List.

The team at B&T have already formed a list of some of the top female talent in Australia which you can view below. However, if there is a woman who isn’t there and who you believe is a cut above the rest and deserves to be, make sure to vote for them in the survey at the bottom.

It could be a colleague, your boss, or even yourself. We want to hear from you.

Once nominations close and we have the combined list of women, we throw it over to our judges to select their top picks, thus arriving at the final 30.
