Call for 2018 EDNA Nominations

Nominations for the 21st EDNAs are now open until 21 September 2018.

See the Nominations page for more details and to download the Nomination form.

The EDNAs are awards for women who have made feminist difference, whose activity advances the status of women: the battlers and the unsung heroines who show commitment and determination.

Nominees must be comfortable with being referred to as feminist, and live or work in NSW or ACT. There are ten categories for nominations. We accept ONE nomination only from each individual or organisation. Past recipients are ineligible for nomination in 2018. Please check the list of previous recipients before preparing an entry.

The Review Panel is looking for evidence of the nominee’s achievements or actions that have improved the status of women, whether on a small or large scale. Long service alone, or being well-known, is not enough for someone to receive an EDNA. Nor do the EDNAs only recognise women who are successful in their field.
