WIICTA season kicks off in October
The third annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) is opening soon for business, with nominations running from October 1 until October 22, 2014.
WIICTA recognises and celebrates female excellence in the ICT channel, rewarding professional achievements and outstanding results in the industry. The awards are: Achievement; Rising Star; Entrepreneur; Innovation; Technical; and Community.
New this year is the addition of the Lifetime Achievement award, which is not open to nomination.
The esteemed candidate is selected by ARN president and publisher, Susan Searle, ARN Associate Editor, Jennifer O'Brien, and IT veteran and ARN Hall of Fame member Ross Cochrane. The Lifetime Achievement award recognises the candidate with outstanding and unwavering dedication and commitment to the ICT industry.
These seven awards recognise the very best in the channel, celebrating the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have made it through to become influential figures in Australia’s ICT industry, as well as ‘rising stars’ in the industry.

The WIICTA celebration luncheon is on Thursday November 27 at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney. Last year, over 216 people attended the lavish awards celebration, and ARN is expecting this number to significantly rise as the industry continues to recognise the importance of the WIICTA awards program.
