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.
