It’s Here! Finalists Announced For Women In Media Awards 2018

The entries are in, and the awards are around the corner. Which means it’s time to announce the Women in Media Shortlist for 2018!

Next month, these awards will celebrate the plethora of inspirational women in this industry in style with a gala dinner and epic after party.

Which is made even better if you’re partying it up with your very own Women in Media trophy.

We’ve had a ton of entries this year, and the calibre has been off the charts.

But our judges managed to sort through the 250-plus entries and have identified the cream of the crop. And now we can finally share it with you.

These fabulous shortlisted entrants are the best of the best, and we think any and all of them deserve to win.

Before we get to the shortlist, here’s one important note – make sure your name and company are spelled correctly. 

Yes, we know you submitted it and you should know how to spell your own name and the name of your company. But in that procrastination-driven, last-minute panic, sometimes people make mistakes. And if you win, a trophy really won’t look as good if it doesn’t have the correct name on it.

So advise of any name or company changes ASAP to viv@bandt.com.au. Right now.

In case you’ve forgotten (or you just haven’t been paying attention) B&T‘s Women in Media Awards 2018 will be held on Friday 17 August at Doltone House – Jones Bay Wharf.

And a friendly reminder that if you’ve been shortlisted, you must buy a ticket to the event. Earlybird tickets are available until March 30, so grab em here! Find out if you’ve been shortlisted below:
