How do I nominate?

You can nominate in as many categories as you deem appropriate.

Please use the criteria (listed below) of the category you wish to enter to shape your written submission, as the judges will refer to each criteria to guide their decisions. You will be asked to answer three questions which will require a range of 200-1000 words. The three questions you will be asked are:

  • Please outline your career to date and what inspired you to join the industry? (200-1000 words max)
  • Please outline what professional and personal challenges you have faced to date and how you have coped/dealt with them. (200-1000 words max)
  • What are you now doing to promote opportunities for women or other specific groups within the industry and broaden knowledge outside the industry through personal initiatives. Please provide evidence/testimonials of the effectiveness of you work (200-1000 words max)

The more factual information and stats you can provide for any of these questions, the better your chances on being a finalist on the shortlist.
