Nominate your favourite Women of Influence

2010 Woman of Influence Maggie Beer
Who are the women that shape your world? This year, the Australian Women's Weekly will again pay tribute to the country's most influential women, as nominated by our readers.
They will be celebrated in a photographic portfolio in the November issue of The Weekly.
Each year, we ask our readers to nominate the women who most influence the key spheres of our readers' lives: food, books, arts and entertainment, fashion and current affairs.
In 2010, we honoured Westpac chief executive, Gail Kelly; designer Carla Zampatti; chef Maggie Beer; author Judy Nunn; and director Gillian Armstrong. We asked each their top five tips for success.
This year, potential nominees could include; chefs Margaret Fulton, Stephanie Alexander and Kylie Kwong; in entertainment, actress Jackie Weaver, costume designer Catherine Martin and curator Elizabeth-Ann McGregor; in fashion, designers Gail Elliott, the Zimmermans, or Fleur Wood; and in books, authors Geraldine Brooks, Nikki Gemmell or Kate Morton; and in current affairs, Queensland Premier Anna Bligh, Governor-General, Ms Quentin Bryce, or Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick.

Who are the women influencing your lives in 2001?
