2017 ACT women's awards

Recognising exceptional women in our community

The ACT Women’s Awards recognise the achievements of women who have made an outstanding contribution to the lives of women and girls in our local community.

Everyone knows a Canberra woman who makes a real difference to the lives of others. Some are high profile women and some have a very low profile. Being nominated by your own community can mean just as much as winning an award. The ACT Women’s Awards are just one way of saying thank you to the excellent work women do across Canberra.

Nominations for the 2017 ACT Women’s Awards recognise exceptional women in the following three categories:

  • ACT Woman of the Year
  • ACT Senior Woman of Year (50 years and over)
  • ACT Young Woman of the Year (16-30 years)

Nominations close on Friday 18 November 2016. To nominate someone please visit
