Who can nominate for these Awards?
You can nominate yourself or your colleagues/peers.
Please make full use of the wordcount providing the performance information requested in the category description. You are also invited to include links to associated work for our judges to verify the information shared.
How do I nominate?
Using the nomination link provided, each candidate can be nominated for a maximum of two categories. If subsequent nominations are received, only the first two will be considered for the shortlisting process. Please select the most relevant for you or the candidate being nominated.
Please use the criteria of the category you wish to enter to shape your written submission, as the judges will refer to the criteria to guide their decisions. You should submit an essay style submission which (we recommend) should be between 600 – 800 words.
The more factual information and stats you can provide for any of these questions, the better your chances of being shortlisted. The submission should cover achievements in the day-to-job as well as prove of your advocacy for gender parity, diversity, equity and inclusion.
What is the involved cost?
There is no cost to enter a submission for the awards.
Equally, if you are shortlisted, there is no cost to attend this virtual event. Thanks to the support of our wonderful sponsors, we are able to make this a free to attend opportunity for all nominees and their guests.
If I can’t attend the ceremony, will this impact my chances of winning?
No, this will not impact your chances of winning at all. You are welcome to ask someone to accept the award on your behalf, or you can send an acceptance message which the WIT Team will be happy to share for you. Your award will be sent to your postal address post-event.
Who judges the submissions?
An independent panel of industry judges will consider each nomination and vote on the winners for each category. Please view the judging information for more on the judging methodology.
