Welcome to Bloom Awards Australia
Celebrating Women In Business

Make Someones Day Nominate Today - What past nominees have to say:

       "Oh My God! Really?!?!?!! This is amazing to even just be nominated – you just made my day! Super dooper excited!"  Natasha Zervos

"I am just thrilled to have been nominated for the National Award for writing! You are really setting a standard for mum's in the workforce, Tashia .... and an awards night that has been 6 years running (!). There are days when I doubt my capabilities because I feel like I have given up a strong career to "just be a mum". We can be strong mothers and have a strong impact on the business world at the exact same time. Thank you so much again!" Kasey Bains, finalist Writing Excellence Award 2019

The Awards

Now in its 7th year, Bloom Awards Australia is a celebration of outstanding women in business

It has recognised and celebrated 1000's of women in business Australia wide and internationally. Women with outstanding abilities from diverse backgrounds and a wide range of industries and services.

The awards give women a planform to tell their inspiring stories and celebrating their achievements. The Awards night is also an opportunity for attendees to network, listen to inspiring speakers while enjoying a night of food, entertainment, prizes and more.

We have been celebrating amazing women in business, that's 73 winners, 137 finalists and innumerable nominations.

The Awards Ceremony will be held in June 2020, and will feature 16 award category winners, 4 amazing speakers and networking galore on the day! The announcement of the winners will follow the speakers and entertainment -  it is a night of celebration and networking - culminating in awarding 16 amazing women in business as the best in their field.

We are so determined to ensure that women in business are recognised for the incredible job they do, that the Bloom Awards Australia are entirely judged. Our judges read and mark every entry and there is no social media voting; ensuring all winners are determined based on merit.

To ensure judging is completely fair, every category has it's own judging panel who use a scoring system to determine the winners. The panel is made up of the Award sponsor (a woman in business who has experience within the field and is managing the category) and two guest judges. Many of these judges of the years head up Oz-wide known businesses like Source Bottle, Whole Kids, What's On 4, The Entrepreneurial Mother, Virtually Yours, Fi Mims Photography and Fourzero.
