WomenMediaAwardsWhen people think of ‘business awards’ they most often think of awards for overall companies or executives, especially Fortune 500 companies. The Stevie Awards recognize achievement in every facet of the workplace for organizations of every size, including media produced by or for women. The Stevie Awards for Women in Business has categories for Websites and Blogs, Events, Apps, and Videos.

Entries in these categories require the following:

1. An essay of up to 125 words describing the nominated work: its purpose and results to date.
2. The nominated work itself, which you should upload to our server via the new uploading tool on our online entry form.
3. Optionally, you can provide creative and production credits for the work, such as writers, creative directors, and programmers.

Website or Blog of the Year: Recognizing excellence in websites and blogs created and maintained by or for women. There is no eligibility period requirement for this category - it doesn't matter when the site or blog was first published.

Event of the Year: Recognizing events of all types staged for women since July 1, 2014.

Smartphone or Tablet App of the Year: Recognizing excellence in smartphone and tablet apps produced by or for women since July 1, 2014.

Video of the Year: Recognizing excellence in videos produced by or for women since July 1, 2014.

Last year’s winner in the App of the Year category was created by Infant & Toddler Forum of London. The Infant & Toddler Forum provides reliable, evidence-based information and practical tools to support parents in making the right choices when feeding toddlers. Their ‘Tot It Up’ toddler food calculator app was released in 2013 so parents can monitor the food intake and activity of their children aged 1-4. Especially for first time parents, it can be confusing trying to figure out what the best foods are for your child. The app provides a personal analysis of the diet of the child and provides suggestions to ensure the child is getting the right balance of food groups, and works around any food allergies. Through the app, parents are also able to question children’s health professionals if need be.

Fabulous@50 won a Stevie Award for Event of the Year. They empower, educate and inspire women over the age of 40 through events, magazines and an online and offline membership. They host a Fabulous@50 Experience and Martini Party every year in November in Edmonton, Alberta. The event brings products, services, and speakers that are chosen specifically for this demographic. One attendee said “I would like thank Fabulous@50 for hosting such an important event - like many others, I gained so much! The Fab at 50 Martini Party offered many gifts - laughter, learning and networking, to mention a few. The show was very well organized with a display of a great variety of products and services. To be in the presence of so many strong, supportive, successful women was nothing short of inspiring!”
