Just because COVID-19 reared its ugly head and disrupted life as we know it, it doesn’t mean we need to put life on hold. Exceptional work should be celebrated, and people should continue to be recognised for their outstanding contribution to the industry we all love and work in.
In many instances, social isolation has seen women pick up the brunt of home schooling, in addition to trying to keep their full time jobs – unfairly putting women at a disadvantage.
There is also evidence to suggest women are more likely to be in contract roles and at greater risk of losing their jobs.
These are just a few of the reasons why, more than ever, B&T is proud to launch its 2020 Women in Media Awards, presented by Are Media (who today launched its latest HERpulse survey results), a program recognising exceptional women who have achieved incredible success.
And today, we’re calling on you, women in media, to submit your entries and show the world why you deserve to win such a prestigious award, because we know you do.
Entries in the 18 categories, which span the marketing, advertising and media industry, are open to women at any level of their business, from chief executive to new starters, and will be judged by a panel of top female executives.
We will also be awarding Woman of the Year – this will be chosen by B&T as being the most influential out of the field of entrants; as well a People’s Choice and Lifetime Achievement Award winners.
Are Media continue their support, having been a headline partner for five years.
The Australian Women’s Weekly, Country Style and Better Homes & Gardens group editor-in-chief/associate publisher Nicole Byers said, “ We couldn’t be prouder to support these awards and continue Bauer’s push for a brighter female future. With challenging times ahead, it has never been more important to celebrate and support the brilliant women creating, innovating and driving change across the industry.”
Don’t be shy, be proud of your achievements! Submit your entry here.
You can also buy tickets to the event here, which will be held on Wednesday 28 October 2020, Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf.
