If you would like to nominate an agent, network, business, innovator, leader or property manager for a Women in Real Estate Award, click here. Nominating is easy and will take less than a minute; nominations across multiple categories can be done on the one form. The nominee will need to undertake the submission process should they choose to participate in the awards program.

Submissions must be lodged via the online secure awards submission platform by Thursday, 22 October.

Our awards platform is safe and secure. It’s ISO/IEC 27001 certified, compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), PCI DSS, and more.

Submissions for all categories will be assessed against the specific category criteria, scored and then shortlisted to determine award finalists. Finalists will then be announced.

Finalists (individuals and groups) will be contacted directly as well as published on REB and the Women in Real Estate Awards website. Finalists will be announced on Monday, 16 November.

Finalists’ submissions (across all categories) will be delivered to a panel of respected industry professionals and business leaders, who will assess each submission for the categories in which they are judging. Judges are drawn from the business community, academia, associations, not-for-profit, consulting and specific industry sectors – offering diversity in submission assessment.

A pool of judges will be allocated to judge each category to ensure a blended assessment of submissions. Judges will score each submission against the specific category criteria and assessment requirements, with the aggregate of the judges’ scores used to determine the category winner.

One winner will be announced per award category, with the awards presented at a live broadcast event. For full details on the event, click here.
