The shortlist for B&T’s Women in Media Awards has been revealed! Our judges worked tirelessly to come to the below list from all the incredible women who entered the awards.

This year, the Awards will be held on Friday 19th August 2016 at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, featuring Gretel Killeen as MC, keynote by Tracey Spicer, and entertainment by Goldheist (aka Hester Fraser).

Tickets are still available (but not for long) to both the inaugural daytime forum and the awards. For those who want to jump in on People’s Choice, you can still vote here until August 5. 

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE WOMEN IN MEDIA AWARDS?

Entries in the 15 categories, which span the 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. One new category will be introduced this year – Entrepreneur. 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.

The awards night will be a cocktail party with a keynote address from a leading woman in the industry. We will also be announcing B&T’s Power List – recognising the 30 most influential women in the Australia mediascape.

More than just recognition, the Awards provide an opportunity for new business opportunities and network expansion, as well as a chance to learn from some of the most empowering and inspiring women in your industry.
