Nominations open October 1
Nominations for the third annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) open on October 1 and run for three weeks until October 22.
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.
A new award has been added this year - the Lifetime Achievement award, but this is not open to nomination. The award recognises the candidate with outstanding and unwavering dedication and commitment to the ICT industry.
The winner will be 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.
WIICTA celebrates the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have become either influential figures or rising stars in Australia’s ICT industry.
Nominees can either self-nominate or be nominated by a co-worker, colleague or manager. Simply nominate by October 22, making sure you meet the two or three criteria listed for each award. Please limit your response to a maximum of 350 words per question.
The WIICTA celebration luncheon will be held on Thursday, November 27, at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney. Last year, more than 215 people attended the lavish awards celebration, and ARN is expecting the number to rise significantly as the industry continues to recognise the importance of the WIICTA awards program.
