WiTWA Award Application Workshop - Insider Tips on Writing a Great Award Submission

  • Brookfield Place Level 17 125 Saint Georges Terrace Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

So, you’ve all heard the news. The WITWA 2019 Tech [+] 20 Awards is officially open for nominations.

You may be considering a nomination for yourself or a colleague for the WiTWA Tech [+] 20 Awards or one of the many other industry or government award programs that exist.

Award programs have long been considered significant to professional development and for the contribution to a business profile in a myriad of ways. For women in particular, the mere act of applying for an award can be an empowering experience and provide the applicant with time to reflect on her strengths and skills in her industry. For women nominating other women, the experience is just as rewarding as we recognise and celebrate the achievements of our peers – plus being nominated by a colleague can sometimes be award enough!)

In previous WiTWA [+] TechXchanges we have heard from women who say that winning an award is a huge validation of their contribution from industry peers and experts. Some have told of winning awards as a way to generate recognition and promote belief in the work being done and others say that winning an award can be a strategic move in attracting investors and competitive staff.

There is no doubt from experts and those who have been through the process that many applications are considered arduous and often have very particular nuances. Common issues include a sense of feeling overwhelmed, not understanding the criteria, uncertainty as to how to make your application stand out and how much of your story you should share.

This is where we come in; to help remove barriers and provide you with the tools, knowledge and confidence to focus your efforts and slay that application! Cue ‘award submissions whisperer’ Sarah Mitchell, Founder, Director at Typeset and Global Copywriting.
