    • meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Submissions Guideline;
    • comply with these Terms and Conditions; and,
    • submit your entry by the deadline outlined in the Submission Guideline.
  2. The Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network (SCBWN) reserves the right to declare any entrant ineligible if, in the reasonable opinion of SCBWN or a Sponsor:
    • you are considered to be unable to represent the Awards in a satisfactory manner;
    • you have not complied with these Terms or the Submission Guideline;
    • the application is incomplete; or,
    • information provided by you is deficient, false or misleading in any way.


SCBWN collects personal information about entrants in the 2023 Awards. If the personal information requested is not provided, the entrant cannot participate in the Awards and your entry will be void.  

By submitting a final application in the 2023 Awards, you consent for SCBWN to use and disclose your personal information to our Sponsors and other third parties engaged directly to provide services in connection with the Awards, for the purposes of:

  • marketing (including by email, SMS/MMS, mail, and telephone and other channels);
