Nominate the Most Powerful Women

Every year, Cablefax recognizes the most powerful women based on their influence and power within the industry—as well as their commitment to ensuring that other execs receive the same opportunities to grow and flourish.

The Most Powerful Women magazine also recognizes women across departments including advertising, communications, corporate culture,  sales, content, consultants, distribution, digital, finance, legal, operations and more. 

As always, it’s free to nominate candidates for the Most Powerful Women list. The new Individual & Organization awards listed below are NEW entry categories to highlight people and initatives worthy of special recognition in 2020. There is an entry fee for these new categories. 

Submit your entries by August 28
