The Australian Women in Wine Awards operates using the following process:
Put up your hand! Enter yourself for one of the awards on offer. You are also able to nominate women in the wine community whom you think should enter. We call it giving them a ‘tap on the shoulder’. However, all nominees must complete their own entry form.
Nominations & Entries open Saturday 20th May 2017 and are open for 8 weeks.
Entries close midnight Tuesday 1st August 2017.
The Advisory Board will create a shortlist of finalists once entries close on 1st August 2017.
Shortlisted finalists will be contacted and announced on Friday 22th August 2017.
Our panel of expert judges will then assess the finalists to determine each category winner.
To be eligible to enter the 2017 Australian Women in Wine Awards you must meet the following criteria:
– Must be living in Australia and is either an Australian citizen or an Australian resident.
– Not employed by The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society, any member of the Advisory Board, or any company / brand sponsoring the Individual Award for which is she is applying
Winners will be announced on Tuesday 26th September 2017 in a special awards celebration in London in conjunction with Wine Australia. Finalists DO NOT need to be in attendance – but are encouraged to come if they can!
The celebration night will be accompanied by a trade and consumer tasting event of Australian Women in Wine, with more than 50+ women flying over to participate!
As in other years, the winners announcement will be LIVE STREAMED – this time from London – to events all around Australia. We want everyone in wine regions, cities, towns, shires and everywhere else to host their own get-togethers on the night so we can have multiple celebrations happening all over the world when the winners are announced live online. Join the awards night party near you.
