While 2021 appears to have picked up where 2020 left off and thrown more COVID curveballs our way, that hasn’t stopped us from shining a light on all the incredible women who continue to make their mark on the industry.

Looking for the live stream of B&T’s Women in Media Awards? You’ve found it – click here!

B&T’s Women in Media Awards, presented by Are Media, is all about celebrating the fabulous females making outstanding contributions to the industry we all love and work in, and ain’t no global pandemic gonna stop us from doing just that!

However, given the current lockdown situation in Sydney, we’ve decided to play it safe and take the awards into a virtual arena.

The event will still be held on the same date (Friday 27 August at 4pm), and we’ll still be bringing the same glitz and glam you’re all accustomed to. Register HERE now to secure your spot at this year’s WIM Awards!

Now, our judges have had a tough time getting through all the fab entries for this year’s awards and putting together the all-important shortlist, but that’s their job.

If you’re on the list (HUGE congrats), please make sure your name and company are spelled correctly.

If you win, a trophy really won’t look as good if it doesn’t have the correct name on it. Please email riin@bandt.com.au with any changes.

Also, just a reminder that voting is still open for the People’s Choice category, but only until 5pm (AEST) on Friday 23 July. Click HERE to have your say on who should be crowned the WIM Awards People’s Choice winner now!

Once again, a big thanks to our wonderful judges, along with presenting partner Are Media and sponsors CHE Proximity, OMD, QMS Media, Twitch and Doltone House for all your support. We simply couldn’t be putting on such a grand event without each and every one of you!

Now, without further ado, here’s the shortlist for this year’s WIM Awards…
