Rejoice! The Women In Media Awards Are Back For 2018!

Women are inspirational, courageous and strong, but still sometimes unequal to their male counterparts, even in 2018.

Which is why here at B&T we’re celebrating the amazing women in our industry. That’s right folks, the Women in Media Awards are back for 2018!

Running for the sixth consecutive year and presented by the lovely Bauer Media Group yet again, B&T‘s Women in Media Awards will recognise exceptional women who’ve achieved astronomical success in the media and communications industry.

These inspiring women are all around us – leading, innovating and mentoring the next generation. These awards will celebrate that leadership and innovation, and the resulting invaluable contributions they have made to this industry and their own professional arenas.

If you think you could be one of these inspiring women (which you are), entries are now open for the 2018 Women in Media Awards!

There are a whopping 21 categories this year, including Male Champion of Change (which, for obvious reasons, is meant for a man to win). Companies can also enter certain categories like Best Ad Campaign.

You can enter more than one category, provided you fit the criteria, but triple check before you do, because not only have the categories been updated this year, but there are two new categories: Executive Leader and Social Change Maker.

Two other categories have been changed this year:

  • Agency Sales/Account Management (previously part of Sales/Account Management)
  • Media Sales/Account Management (previously part of Sales/Account Management)

So, without further ado, take a look at the new and improved, 2018-style list of categories you can enter in:

  1. Best Ad Campaign – Championing the Equality Cause
  2. Creative
  3. Creative Producer
  4. Employer
