The dress code is black tie.

All guests will receive a welcome drink and there will be a selection of light bites/buffet items on each table. There will also be a chocolate fountain for those with a sweet tooth.

Guests can arrive from 5.30pm

We will be done with the award announcements by 10.30pm at the latest. But if you want to hang around after that there’s usually a bunch of us who head out to continue the celebrations.

We’d be a bit disappointed to hear that you didn’t want to be nominated, but we’d understand and would be happy to remove you from the process.

Yes, if you didn’t make the shortlist but would still like to attend, there will still be tickets on sale when the shortlist is announced.

Anyone who is on the shortlist will receive 2 tickets to the awards, one for themselves and one for a guest of their choice. Additional tickets can be purchased via GuestList.

We will announce the shortlist as soon as we have completed judges packs back from all judges, this is usually around Mid October so you can expect the shortlist to be announced no later than the end of October.

If you have been nominated you will receive an email letting you know and asking you to confirm your attendance to the awards.

We pride ourselves on having some of the best volunteers around and we know that they are totally awesome and add some fierce competition when nominated. For that reason we allow nominations for any of our volunteers except from our founder, Vickie, and we work hard to ensure that they are not involved in the judging process in any way, and that the only person who handles the nominations is Vickie.

Yes please do, we know that our nominees are often multi-talented and fit into more than one category, so please do nominate them in any that you think are relevant. The judging panels are different for each award so they may even win in more than one category!

Anyone can be nominated, we have no restrictions on this. Provided you identify as female and work in the tech industry/ a tech based job, you qualify to be nominated.

Nominations for the 2024 awards open on the 1st July.

Nominations for the 2024 awards close on the 4th September.
