Who can nominate and how do I nominate?
Nominations are encouraged from individuals self-nominating, or we encourage people to nominate others who they feel are worthy of recognition. The awards program recognises the exceptional contributions of women and individuals who identify as women in the digital health sector. Please refer to the detailed terms and conditions at the bottom of this page for eligibility requirements.
Nominations must be completed via the Award Force online platform. By clicking on the link to nominate, you will be prompted to create an account, verify your email and then have access to the form. Once you’ve selected whether you are self-nominating or nominating another person, you will then simply need to complete the questions and then submit.
If you have any technical issues with the nomination form, please email email@example.com.
What does the overall process and timeline involve?
The nominations will be open until 30 June 2023 (AEST). After this, our judges will review all nominations. This will take place over a four-week period before selecting the final award recipients by early September. We will contact the award recipients to conduct interviews to create a report celebrating the 2023 Brilliant Women in Digital Health award recipients. The report will be launched digitally, in October at events to celebrate award recipients.
What opportunities do the 2023 award recipient receive?
The final 25 will be recognised for their achievements in digital health and asked to share their story to inspire others and raise awareness of the opportunities in digital health. As well as being involved in the various launch events and associated activities, the finalists will:
· become a lifetime member of the Brilliant Connected Women in Digital Health network of people within digital health
· be provided with opportunities to participate as part of the network, in terms of events, publications, speaking occasions and overall profiling.

This is a game of skill only. There is no element of chance in determining the award recipients. The award recipients will be selected by the judges based on the following categories:
· Advancing medical research through technology.
· Contribution to developing a new digital health product or technology.
· Achieving health outcomes using technology.
· Contribution to the growth, maturation and commercialisation of the digital health sector through innovation, leadership, support and advocacy.
· Introducing a new digital process to improve clinician and patient experiences in health and aged care.
In addition, a Judge’s Choice Award will recognise outstanding contributions and achievements in the sector.
The independent judges have been appointed to represent a cross section of individuals with knowledge and experience of Australia’s digital health sector. The judges volunteer their time and participate in a personal capacity.
Please be aware that the 2023 Brilliant Women in Digital Health is purely a recognition initiative where we will profile the award recipients who our judges determine as most successfully meeting the entry criteria. Therefore, there will be no monetary prize received.
Instead, the award recipients who are selected will be profiled in a report which we will publish to recognise them and to celebrate their achievements. All award recipients will also be invited to awards events in their closest Australian city - Melbourne, Sydney or (TBD) Perth on the evening of Thursday 19 October.
The award recipients will be flown to the closest award event by Telstra Health (if they do not already reside there) and will be provided with one night’s hotel accommodation (again, for those who do not already reside there). Any other reasonable travel expenses (as decided by us) will also be reimbursed if appropriate proof of purchase such as a tax invoice or receipt is provided.
