The 2019 B&T Women in Media Awards are just a few months away, which means we need your help with our Women in Media Power List. That means if you’re a powerful, trailblazing, inspirational woman, we want you!

UPDATE: Nominations now closed. 

There are plenty of inspiring, talented and trailblazing women in the media industry.

So to make it a little easier, we’ve searched far and wide and come up with a list of the best of the best nominees for our 2019 Power List.

We’ve got over 200 amazing women – but if you think anyone’s missing, drop her name in the comments section below! And if you think you’re missing from the list, make sure you let us know too.

Once we have all the names, we’ll throw it over to our judges to select their top picks. Only 30 women will make our 2019 Power List (but every woman in media is powerful, nonetheless!)

You don’t have to be a C-suite woman to be on this list, or to top it! Our judges will just be looking for ways you are both influential and powerful in the industry.
