Women in Finance 2019 – How to create a winning award entry

The finalists have now been announced for the Women in Finance Awards, 2019. The winners will be announced at a gala event at The Star Sydney on 1 August.

Women in Finance, supported by AMP, is one of the largest national awards programs dedicated to women in financial services. There are dozens of individual and company categories that entrants can select from. These range from categories like ‘Accountant of the Year’ and ‘FinTech Leader of the Year’ acknowledging client-facing staff who generate revenue, through to categories like ‘Office Administrator of the Year’ and ‘Wellness Program of the Year’, recognising the work that happens behind the scenes to keep everything running smoothly and successfully.

Here are this year’s range of award categories. While Women in Finance 2019 has now closed to new entrants, if you’re a woman working in finance why not consider entering next year’s awards?

Why nominate?

There are many reasons to nominate. Here are some of them:

  • Celebrate your successes
  • Continue to push yourself to achieve more
  • Inspire others
  • Raise your personal profile
  • Unlock new career opportunities
  • Network with professional women from across the industry
  • Join the fun at the industry’s night-of-nights gala event.

Start planning now

A winning award submission needs to tell a strong and compelling story, so it’s time to start building content and evidence for next year’s submission now.

A good way to do this is to:

  • Set goals
  • Measure progress towards achieving them
  • Document the trials you face
  • Describe how you overcome challenges
  • Refine/extend goals.

When life is busy, a lot of good material can get forgotten over the course of a year. This can make writing an award submission challenging. Therefore, it’s good practice to record it as you go, and then you’ll have this information to hand for performance review purposes as well.

Of course, writing may not be your strong suit, but this does not need to stand in your way of winning an award for the work that you do. Proof Communications can help you get the recognition that you deserve; with over 90% of our clients shortlisted for awards and 75% going on to win, engaging a professional award writer can be a good investment in your career.
