The countdown is on for our second-ever Women Leading Tech Awards (REMINDER: they’re on 20 April at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf).
As we get closer to the event, we know a lot of you are busy perfecting your entries. Rather than spending time looking up all of the terms and requirements, we’ve decided to put together a handy list and answer all of your Women Leading Tech related questions.
Questions #1: Do you have to work at a tech company to enter?
Answer: No you don’t. As long as your role is technology-led within any organisation, you are eligible to enter.
Questions #2: Are past entrants and winners eligible to enter this year?
Answer: Yes they are.
Questions #3: Can I only enter into one category?
Answer: You can enter into as many categories as you see fit.
Questions #4: I’m worried about sensitive or confidential information in my entry. Will this information be protected.
Answer: All B&T Women Leading Tech Award judges will be required to sign an NDA prior to reviewing any entries, so you can be sure that any sensitive information and results are kept confidential.
Question #5: I’m not based in Australia but my services/products are available across A/NZ. Can I enter?
Answer: If you’re in the APAC region, and the products and services offered by your company are available across ANZ, then the Women Leading Tech Awards are open to you.
Question #6: Can I edit my entry after I submit it?
Answer: Yes you can. All entries can be edited right up until the closing date and time (5pm on Monday, 1 March).
Questions #7: Can someone else submit my entry for me?
Answer: Yes they can. You can submit your own entry, or have someone else nominate you.
We hope these answer all of your questions. Please also find some of our top tips for finalising your entry.
- Make sure you include a photo in your entry. For the advocacy category please use a team photo.
- Don’t wait until the last minute to get your entry in.
- Always save your entry as a back up.
And remember, keep an eye out for the shortlist, which will be released on Thursday 1 April.
