Are Media and B&T couldn’t be more thrilled to congratulate the winners of this year’s Women in Media Awards.

It was the virtual celebration to end all virtual celebrations as hundreds of media professionals tuned in to watch 17 incredible industry leaders recognised for their phenomenal achievements in media over the last 12 months.

It’s always an honour to be recognised and awarded for your achievements, but arguably even more so during one of the most difficult and challenging periods humanity has experienced in recent memory. So, a hearty congrats to all our winners and all those shortlisted, too.

A total of 21 awards were handed out on the night, with VERSA Agency CEO and founder Kath Blackham scooping up a huge three awards, and taking out the title of Women of the Year. Meanwhile, Leo Burnett’s Susie Henry nabbed the Lifetime Achievement Award, and SpotX’s Ilda Jamison earned the People’s Choice Award.

See the full list of winners below, and stay tuned for another article with all the hot pics from the night!
