The Women in Digital Awards were founded based on the idea ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’ and are a celebration of incredible women and non-binary people within the digital industries and the organisations that support them.
For the 2022 Women in Digital Awards, we received a record number of nominations and completed submissions! It was not an easy decision for our panel of industry expert judges but we are so very excited to announce the FINALISTS for the 2022 Women in Digital Awards.

Please note: With a tech giant with over 8,000 employees like our Software Engineer of the Year sponsor Atlassian, there were bound to be some incredible entries that came from that organisation. Our independent industry judging panel reviewed and selected the finalists for this category. Through the judging process, Rachelle Rathbone (Atlassian) and Jovana Dunisijevic (Atlassian) were judged on different software projects and chosen as finalists due to the calibre of their work and submission. To ensure there was no conflict of interest, any judges who were in conflict were removed from the process for those specific applications.
