Our next WiT Awards Gala ‘Make your Mark’ is to be held on Friday 30th August at Brisbane City Hall. Sure to be our largest Awards Gala to-date, we encourage you to support your female mentors, colleagues, sisters, friends, role-models, or all-out superstars by nominating them! Believe in yourself and apply… you never know… the next winner could be you! For some inspiration, you can read all about last year’s winners here.
NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!!! You only have ONE MONTH to nominate your female mentors, colleagues, sisters, friends, or role-models. Nominations close on Friday 31st May. Nominating only takes a few minutes of your time but could change the life of someone you nominate.
Remember too that you do not need to be nominated to apply. You can apply without being nominated. However, if you nominate someone, or are nominated by someone, they do/you do, need to go on to apply.
We have a wide-range of Awards categories within Sciences and ICT recognising women at varying stages of their career. There is also the Employer of Choice Award for both corporate and small to medium-size organisations so if your company, or a company you know, are making exceptional advances in diversity and supporting women, then nominate them. We also celebrate female tech entrepreneurs again this year with our Sue Wickenden Entrepreneurial Award and this year we have a new award category - the Community Award.

So with this in mind, here are some quick facts to help you prepare:
- You can read more about entry criteria here.
- Don’t be afraid! Give it a go.
- As part of the process you will receive an Application Information Pack that will help you through every step of the application process and of course we are here to answer any questions.
Women tend not to think they are worthy of the recognition nor deserve to be nominated or apply… but over the years we have witnessed the amazing contribution every one of you make and every single nomination, application, finalist and winner has been deserved. You need to believe in yourself. We will leave you with the quote by Atticus:
‘She was powerful not because she wasn’t scared but because she went on so strongly, despite the fear’
