And the finalists are ...

After a record number of entries and tough competition, ARN is proud to announce the list of finalists for the third annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA).

This year, there was a significant increase in nominations from last year’s awards, which  underscores the value of a program such as this one. Nominations nearly doubled on last year with 90 contenders submitting entries.

Due to an overwhelming number of strong contenders in the Rising Star category, ARN has created a new category – the Shining Star award – for nominees with more than 10 years in ICT.

It is fair to say that, overall, a tough battle was waged across all seven award categories: Achievement, Rising Star, Shining Star, Entrepreneur, Innovation, Technical, and Community.

The awards recognise and celebrate female excellence in the ICT channel, and reward professional achievements and outstanding results in the industry.

WIICTA will be presented at a lavish luncheon in Sydney at the Ivy Ballroom on Thursday, November 27.

Congratulations to all the finalists. So, without further ado, this year's finalists are:
