With our Women In Media awards fast approaching, like a middle-aged man driving a sports car. We wanted to take a second to look at what our past winners have accomplished since they took the home top prize.
Honestly, we just want to drive home the point that these awards really are career-changing. They put you on the map; they give your employers and future employers the chance to have a snapshot of what you’ve achieved in your career. (Also, a great opportunity to ask for a pay rise.)
So, don’t hesitate to apply here.
We also think it’s especially important we give women the space to brag and celebrate themselves. Because let’s face it the world isn’t always great at giving women that chance.
Nina Funnel, the founder of the #LetHerSpeak movement snagged our Women Of The Year Award in 2021. Funnel, of course, has won a Walkley and is known for activism.
Funnel’s activism has actually gotten laws changed and since she won her award, she’s continued to be a loud and important voice in supporting victims.
Her #LetHerSpeak campaign has also recently gone international.
The #LetUsSpeak campaign has gone international!
We are so proud to stand with NZ man, Corey Johnson, who today secured his right before a judge 2b named as a sexual abuse survivor in NZ, where victims' names
are automatically suppressed

In 2020 our Women Of The Year award was snagged by Kath Blackham. Blackham is the CEO and founder of the VERSA agency. Blackham is known for her commitment to helping women to experience better working life, while also driving VERSA to be a leading agency in AI and technology.
Since 2020 she’s continued to steer VERSA on an incredible path and is a mentor and leader to so many women in our industry.
In 2019 our Women Of The Year award winner Aimee Buchanan. At the time Buchanan won she was at OMD Australia and she snagged the top prize because she’s not just known for her incredible work but her ability to be an incredible leader and support for upcoming women in her industry.
Since then, Buchanan has become the first female Chief Executive officer at GroupM.
These women aren’t just winners they are leaders in our industry and here at B&T, we love acknowledging and supporting their work.
So, apply here! To be our next Woman of The Year!
