Heads up: WIT late entries close TONIGHT!

Heads up: WIT late entries close TONIGHT!

It’s been a long, long road. But the day is finally here. The entries are in. The late entries are in. And at midnight tonight, entries for WIT will officially close!

Which means if you haven’t submitted your entry, you have less than 12 hours to get. your. shit. together.

This is your final chance to enter the 2018 Women in Travel Awards!

Late entries will close tonight at midnight – so you have until then to finish your entry (or start and finish your entry).

For the third year, these annual awards will champion the best of the best women in the travel industry – and we want you to be one of them.

But the catch is, you can’t win unless you enter (obviously) so if you’ve been thinking about it, now is the time to dive in and put yourself forward! Find the entry form right here, and get cracking.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in aviation, cruise or even if you’re a male who’s doing some serious good for the women in the travel industry – as long as you’re working in the travel industry, you can enter and be eligible to win!

Hot tip: we’d recommend entering now rather than after a few too many at happy hour tonight because:

a) Your entry has way more chances of being a hot mess (which won’t win you one of our coveted, shiny trophies)


b) There’s bound to be a ton of you last-minute, serial procrastinators on the system later tonight, which will make for even more slow and stressful entering

Entries will close at midnight tonight, so get moving, and get your entry in before it’s too late!

All we want is for the best of the best women around to be recognised for all their hard work – is that so much to ask?

Stay tuned for more on the upcoming 2018 Women in Travel Awards (which are only a couple months away!) in the coming weeks – but again,  make sure you enter today.

This years awards will be held on June 21 at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf.

All other info can be found on the Women in Travel website here – but to lock yourself in, grab yourself an early bird ticket right here.
