Nominees can self-nominate or nominate other women, teams, or businesses that have made a meaningful impact on the community. The eligibility period for the awards is from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022.

According to Noel D’Cunha, editor, PrintWeek, the Women to Watch Awards is a fantastic opportunity for women to showcase their achievements and receive recognition for their leadership and innovation in the printing and packaging industry. “So, don’t miss this chance to nominate yourself or someone you admire and show the world the power of women.”
