The day is finally here, so we hope you’re prepared!

Today is your last chance to enter the Women in Travel Awards 2018!

Yes, you read that right.

Entries will close today at 5 pm, so get moving, and get your entry in before it’s too late!

These awards will recognise the ever-inspiring women in our industry, the ones that go above and beyond in their roles.

If you’re one of these inspirational women (and we know you are) click right here to enter now!

The awards are a few months earlier this year, hence the spamming of countdown articles for the last couple days.

Hey, we just care, okay?

Seriously, it’s better to enter right this minute than at 4:50pm today. 

And trust us, the earlier you get your entry in, the easier it will be – because there’s bound to be a ton of traffic as all you serial procrastinators struggle to submit in time.

Do you want this to be you?


No, we didn’t think so.

If there’s a lady or two that you think deserves recognition but is unlikely to enter herself, you can also nominate people to win right here.

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

This goes for you too, BTW.

But here’s the catch – you must enter or nominate someone by 5pm today or neither of you will stand a chance!

And all we want is for the best of the best women around to be recognised for all their hard work – and they’ll get a pretty kick-ass trophy too.

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.
