How do I enter?
Entries for Year 2019 will open on September 1, 2019. Entries are online. There is no voting (except for Best Business Award), this is a credible business competition, not a popularity contest! The finalists and winners are chosen by a panel of business experts based on the information supplied in the entry. The cost to enter is $5.00
Do I have to provide financial information?
Well it depends on the category in which you are applying for, this is a business competition and we need to know all the information about your business to enable the judges to make their decision. It’s important to answer all the questions as fully as possible. All information is in the strictest of confidence.
I am not a big business – are these awards for me?
Yes, most certainly. Our awards for business women focus on ordinary individuals who have accomplished amazing achievements for themselves, their business and their clients. These awards are not about big bucks, but people who have made a difference.
Who judges the awards?
A panel of business experts from banking, finance, law, business consultants and business experts.
Is there a face to face interview?
No, as this is a state wide competition this would not be logistically possible.
Do I have to attend a final?
If you are shortlisted as a finalist then yes. Our gala dinner is the celebration and we love all our finalists to attend. All our finalists are worthy of recognition for their achievements, this competition is very much about the businesswomen themselves. Our Awards Show is a celebration of female entrepreneurial achievements. The winners are announced on the night. All the finalists get a framed certificate with their name, business and category on and all winners get a glass trophy.
What will happen after the awards ceremony?
We will help all our finalists and winners with press releases in order to gain publicity. Plus, all winners and finalists are sent our logo to use and we promote all winners and finalists via social media. Additionally, all winners are added to our ‘WMB Club’.
