International Women's Day: Women in Community Life Awards


The 2020 awards recognise the extraordinary contributions of women living and working in the City of Greater Geelong.

Award recipients were announced at the city’s special International Women’s Day celebration which featured Olympian and former senator Nova Peris OAM as guest speaker.

Dr Ellen Moon was crowned 2020’s overall Women in Community Life Award winner, for her efforts in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.

Behind The Scenes with nicole marie

Hi, Nicole here. This is a little behind the scenes info on this project, to provide some context for you to enjoy the imagery more closely.

I was engaged by City of Greater Geelong to document the Women in Community Life Awards. This event showcases and celebrates the outstanding achievements of local women that contribute to a thriving and more equitable community. I got to help design a fun photo booth for attendees. We found this dramatic purple spotlight from the events crew, which helped create a great atmosphere.

The mood was very buoyant and supportive. These kinds of events are a pleasure to be part of. The guest speaker was Nova Paris and her stories and presence were so powerful. It was incredible to meet her and to delve into a deeper layer of local women leading and impacting our community in positive ways. The images were used on various online communications about the event to announce the winners and across social media and on the city’s website.

Thanks for taking the time to listen in today. If you’d like to chat about your upcoming projects with me, please call me or e-mail me through my contact page. Love to hear from you.
