Why should I enter the SHE-com Product Awards?

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

Credibility

When you place as a finalist or a winner in the SHE-com Product Awards, you receive medallions to display on your website and socials that give proof to your potential customers that your business is credible and trustworthy.

Marketing opportunities

Awards give you PR opportunities that can help spread the word about your business - and find you new customers! They can also open the doors to new markets, collaborative opportunities and increased brand awareness.

Recognition

Whether you’re a solopreneur or leading a team, women in ecommerce 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 will be linked on the SHE-com website, giving you additional exposure within our community and a backlink - great for your SEO!

Finalists will also receive additional exposure to our panel judges - from buyers & media, to e-commerce experts - you NEED your products to be seen by this group.

Selected entrants will also be mentioned across our social platforms, letting more people find out about you and your business #sharethelove

Connection

By entering the awards you’ll have the chance to join us for the gala cocktail evening held at the W Brisbane on Friday, 6 September - mix and mingle with like-minded women, make new connections and have FUN!

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY PRODUCTS AFTER JUDGING?

After the completion of judging, some products are kept by the judging panel - some of the buyers attending may wish to keep your product to consider stocking it in their store, or our judges in the media may wish to keep your product to feature in their publication at a later date.

All remaining products in a suitable condition are donated to a domestic violence shelter.

Finalists for each category will be announced late July.  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 entries (e.g. one product in multiple categories, or multiple products), the fee reduces to $97 per entry.

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, 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 in July.

In previous years our independent panel of judges included buyers from The Iconic, Birdsnest and Baby Bunting, journalists from ARE Media and Urban List, freelance beauty editors and a range of influencers and e-commerce experts.  

We are currently putting together the judging panel for 2024 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.

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 Monday, 22 July.

If your products are in the Skincare & Beauty category, please send 3 x each product submitted.

For each entry, you will need to complete and attach this submission formproducts submitted without this form will be ineligible for judging.

Please Note:
no product is required to be sent for theE-commerce Woman of the Year, First Nations Business of the Year and Online Reseller of the Year categories, which are judged on other criteria.

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 Monday, 22 July. If your products are in the Skincare & Beauty category, please send 3 x each product submitted.
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.

After the completion of judging, some products are kept by judges under certain conditions.  

Some of our buyers attending may wish to keep your product to consider stocking it in their store.  Our judges in the media may wish to keep your product to feature in their publication at a later date.  

All remaining products in a suitable condition are donated to a domestic violence shelter in NSW.

At SHE-com we like to provide the opportunity for ALL female-led businesses to be rewarded and recognised, and have provided an extensive category list to suit you and your business.  

If your product does not fall into any of the categories below, please let us know at hello@shecom.co and will help you make the most suitable choice.
