Who Should Enter?

We are looking for women who have proven business achievements, who demonstrate leadership qualities and collaboration, and who are elevating the industry both through their work and their passions.

We are not necessarily looking for women who are at the top of their careers—we are looking for rising stars who have a strong trajectory for future growth.

Does that sound like you, or someone you know? We invite you to put forward yourself, or up to two women from your company, with an explanation as to why you/they stand out in the industry.

Find out if you are eligible to enter:

The nominee must be based in Asia Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand).

The nominee must work in any discipline within or adjacent to brands, media, marketing, advertising, and communications.

We will consider candidates who have appeared in other Campaign Asia-Pacific listings, such as 40 Under 40, Women Leading Change Awards, and Tech MVP — but we prefer there to be a 12-month gap if the candidate has already been featured in any of these lists.

We do want a list that celebrates a diversity of markets, so we encourage companies to spotlight their talent from across the region.

We will have a Women to Watch Greater China edition later this year. Nominees from Greater China can nominate to both lists.

Important notes to consider:

Individuals can nominate themselves or be nominated by a co-worker/manager.

Neither age nor job seniority will be factored into this list. We are open to nominations from junior roles through to C-suite, so long as the individual can prove their success thus far, and a trajectory for further growth. It is worth noting we are looking to celebrate the achievements of women who have not yet reached the very top of their professions or the pinnacle of their careers.

You are allowed to nominate up to two names from your company per market you operate in. To be clear, this means that if you are a company with multiple brands/agencies under it, you can nominate up to two women per brand/agency per market.

We will not rule out choosing more than one candidate from a given company for the final list if they prove exceptional.
