Nominate ladies for the Women in Travel Power List!

Are you a woman who’s at the top of your game in the industry; a juggernaut of travel, a trailblazer of retail a magnate of marketing? If so – we want you!

We’ve surveyed the industry and put together a list of top-notch women in the industry for this year’s Top 15 Power List (see who’s in the running at the bottom of this article).

But we’re opening it up to our eagle-eyed readers to see if we’ve missed anyone. Once all nominations are received, we’ll shoot over the list to our elite judges to cast their final vote on who makes it to the Top 15 – revealed at the Women in Travel Awards on November 27.

So it’s now your time to nominate either yourself or a colleague/boss in the prestigious Women in Travel Power List. 

We’ve opened the nominations to the Travel Weekly audience, which is open to any woman to enter. Then with the combined list of women, we throw it over to our judging panel to select their top picks, thus arriving at the final 15.

Hurry and submit your nominations for the Power List – we’ve already got heaps of them but we want more – see below! All submissions are anonymous!

Entries for Power List nominations close Friday 3 November, so get cracking people!!

And remember, if you’re yet to buy tickets to Women in Travel awards on 27 November at Doltone House Darling Island, Earlybirds are selling out fast here.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Can female judges of the awards enter the Power List?

A: Yes, so long as when judging rolls around, you do not vote for yourself.

Q: Is the Power List a popularity contest?

A: No, each person is only entered once and a panel of external judges form the Power List based on the nominees.

Q: How do you judge the Power List?

A: Once the nominations close, we hand the total list over to a stack of judges on the judging panel and they whittle it down to the top 15.

Q: Do you have to be CEO to get on the Power List?

A: No you don’t – you just have to be deemed an influential female in the industry by our judges so everyone’s got a chance!
