Why should I enter the SHE-com Awards?

Entering awards like the SHE-com Awards is a fantastic way to grow your business and get the recognition you deserve. Here’s why you should enter today!

Credibility

SHE-com Awards medallions are awarded to finalists and winners for display on their website and social media as proof of their business's credibility and trustworthiness.

Marketing opportunities

Awards offer PR opportunities to spread the word about your business, attract new customers, open doors to new markets and collaborations, and increase brand awareness.

Recognition

Whether you’re a solopreneur or leading a team, women in E-commerce often forget to celebrate their wins - by entering these awards you’ll have the opportunity to acknowledge all your hard work, and recognise how far you’ve come!

Exposure

Finalists and winners receive backlinks and additional exposure within the SHE-com community through linking on SHE-com website and exposure to a panel of judges including buyers, media, and e-commerce experts. Selected entrants also get mentioned across SHE-com's social media platforms.

Connection

Entering the Award’s grants the chance to attend the gala cocktail evening on September 6th, where you can connect with like-minded women, make new connections, and have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Entries are open now, and close on 26 June 2023.

Finalists will be announced on 17 July 2023.

Finalists will be announced on our website and emailed with the next steps they need to take.

The entry fee is $197.  If you are submitting 4 or more products, the entry fee reduces to $97 per product.

A LOT of work goes into coordinating the SHE-com Product Awards.  The entry fee goes towards the hours involved managing the submission process, judging, admin, website, warehouse storage costs and logistics.  

 

The fee charged to enter these awards does not guarantee you will win – winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges and based on the judging criteria.  

After products are submitted, finalists for each category are selected by the SHE-com team based on quality, design, packaging and overall user experience.

Finalist products are then judged by an independent, expert panel of judges at judging sessions held on 17 August 2023 August (Beauty & Skincare and Food & Beverage Finalists will be required to send products to judges one month in advance of the judging session to allow adequate time to assess each product).

In 2022 our panel of judges included buyers from The Iconic, journalists from ARE Media and a range of e-commerce experts.  

We are currently putting together the judging panel for 2023 but rest assured we will again be including a range of buyers, media and e-commerce authorities you’ll want to get your products in front of!

To receive an award, each individual product needs a separate entry submitted.  The exception to this rule is variations of the same product.  For example, an item of clothing in different colours but the same style will only require one submission.  If you have a product with multiple variations we suggest submitting your best selling option.

A separate entry is required for each category, even if you are entering the same product.

Forward 1 x product(s) for each award entry to:

SHE-com Product Awards
Po Box 44,
Currumbin QLD 4223

to be received no later than 30 June 2023 (entries for the e-commerce service provider category do not need to submit a product).

Please note: if you are submitting products in the beauty & skincare or food & beverage categories, finalists will need to submit 3 x each product in order to be eligible for judging AFTER FINALISTS ARE ANNOUNCED (please send only 1 x product for the initial round of judging – if you are a finalist in your category you will be notified and advised where to send additional products)

Forward 1 x product(s) for each award entry to:

SHE-com Product Awards
Po Box 44,
Currumbin QLD 4223

to be received no later than 30 June 2023 (entries for the e-commerce service provider category do not need to submit a product).

If your product has multiple sizes, please send the equivalent size:

 

Womens Clothing – size 10

Womens Footwear – size 9

Kids Clothing – size 6

Baby Clothing – size 1

Mens Clothing – size M

For products with multiple colours, we recommend sending your best selling variant.  

If you’re unsure, please email us at hello@shecom.co with details and we can recommend an option for you.

We will not be held responsible for product submissions that go missing in transit.  Please send submissions with tracked postage; we highly recommend insuring your parcel against loss.

Unfortunately we are unable to return products after the judging process is complete. 

Products in a suitable condition will be donated to a DV charity or other charitable organisations.

If you have any issues with the submission process, or any questions we haven’t answered here, send us an email to hello@shecom.co and we’ll be happy to help!

If you want to get started but aren’t ready to complete your application today, you have two weeks to complete your application after your initial registration and payment.

Following announcement of finalists, entrants in the Beauty & Skincare and Food & Beverage categories will be required to submit three additional products for review by the judging panel.

Distribution of products to individual judges will be managed by the SHE-com team.

Initial product submissions will be reviewed by the SHE-com team in order to select the finalists in each category.

Finalists will be judged by an independent panel of judges made up of buyers, media and ecommerce experts.  No guarantee can be made that a particular judge will review any particular category.

SHE-com reserves the right to merge categories if there are insufficient entries, or move products into alternate categories where the SHE-com team believe they would be better suited.

Due to the high volume of entries, SHE-com is unable to guarantee specific feedback on each product entered.

The judges decision is final and no further correspondence will be entered into.

Any SHE-com medallions awarded (including but not limited to finalist, first place, second place, third place, highly commended or editors choice) must only be featured on the relevant product entered.

In accordance with our Privacy Policy, SHE-com is unable to disclose information of the nominating party in the ‘Nominate A Business’ category
