The shortlist for B&T’s Women in Media Awards is here! Our judges have worked tirelessly to come to the below list from all the incredible women who entered the awards.

This year, the awards will be held on Friday 1 September at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, featuring SBS anchor Janice Petersen as MC, and a keynote address by Sky News pundit and former NSW premier Kristina Keneally.

Tickets are still available (but not for long) to the awards. Click here to secure yours! For those who want to jump in on People’s Choice, voting closes this Friday (11 August) at 5pm.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WOMEN IN MEDIA AWARDS

Entries in the 15 categories, which span the advertising and media industry, are open to women at any level of their business, from chief executive to new starters, and will be judged by a panel of top female executives. We will also be awarding Woman of the Year – this will be chosen by B&T as being the most influential out of the field of entrants.

The awards night will be a gala dinner format a keynote address. We will also be announcing B&T’s Power List, recognising the 30 most influential women in the Australia mediascape, and our People’s Choice award.

More than just recognition, the awards provide an opportunity for new business opportunities and network expansion, as well as a chance to learn from some of the most empowering and inspiring women in your industry.
