Women in Media’s popularity contest award – the People’s Choice – closes today at 5pm on the dot, and in the final hours of voting, there’s but a hair separating the frontrunners, with more than 20,000 votes submitted overall.
Following our story that Sydney Festival’s Tina Walsberger had slid backwards in her rank, it looks as though she’s rustled up some serious efforts to crawl back up the ladder, because she’s back in second spot, trailing Nine’s Anne Gruber with plenty of fervour.
