IWD 2024: Nominations open for ‘The Greek Herald Woman of the Year’ Award


To celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) in 2024, The Greek Herald has launched ‘The Greek Herald Woman of the Year’ Award.

This prestigious recognition aims to shine a spotlight on the remarkable achievements and inspiring stories of Greek and Cypriot women in Australia, while embodying the 2024 IWD theme “Inspire Inclusion.”

IWD, celebrated annually on March 8, is a day dedicated to recognising the achievements and contributions of women globally. Over recent years, The Greek Herald has celebrated IWD through its pages and in 2023, the publication asked readers to nominate women they believed to be deserving of recognition.

This year’s “Inspire Inclusion” theme highlights the power of diversity and the importance of creating inclusive spaces where all women can thrive.

‘The Greek Herald Woman of the Year’ Award is an opportunity for Australia’s Greek and Cypriot communities to nominate deserving ‘unsung heroines’ (women) who have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference in their community and respective domains.

Whether it’s a mentor, a teacher, a volunteer or a woman in the field of business, education, science, arts and culture, sports, philanthropy, or any other area, we want to hear about these extraordinary women who have achieved greatness.

“We believe there are countless Australian women with Greek and Cypriot heritage who have been quietly making a difference in their communities,” Andriana Simos, Digital Editor at The Greek Herald, said. “Through this award, we aim to shed light on their remarkable contributions and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”

Nominations for ‘The Greek Herald Woman of the Year’ Award are now open and can be submitted through our web form here.

Nominations close at 5pm, 27 February 2024. An independent panel will carefully review the submissions and select the recipient to be honoured with ‘The Greek Herald Woman of the Year’ Award 2024.

The winner will be announced on the evening of Friday, March 8 and will also be featured in The Greek Herald as a cover story with an exclusive interview.

The finalists will also be announced on Friday 8 March 2024 in The Greek Herald’s print tribute edition and online.
