Here’s how the awards are rolling out in 2019!
Entries open on Thursday 6th June and close at midnight on Thursday 1st August 2019.
The award entry process is fully online and you are able to start your entry, save it and amend it at any time before the closing date.
It’s important to know that YOU DO NOT have to receive a nomination from someone else in order to enter. In fact, we encourage you to enter without one! Why wait for someone else to acknowledge you when you already know what you’ve done and what you’re capable of? We want to help you get the recognition you deserve.
Entries are judged by the AWIWA Board and invited industry leaders and previous winners. Finalists in each category will be announced on Thursday 15th August. So, if you’re a finalist you’ll have a whole month to bask in the glory before the winners announcement in New York on the evening of 17th September 2019 (which is actually the morning of 18th September in Australia).
The winners of each award category will be announced in a special ceremony in New York, USA thanks to a partnership with Wine Australia. In fact, the awards is kicking off the entire USA Aussie Wine Month campaign! The biggest Australia wine campaign ever done in any market.
The ceremony is taking place at Union West, 535-547 W 28th St NY, NY 10001 on the evening of Tuesday 17th September 2019 (which is actually the morning of 18th September in Australia.) Be ready for the most incredible experience as the women of Australian wine take over New York city! Start planning to be there now.
