Everywoman, the UK female business community, is calling for nominations in the second year of its everywoman in Technology Awards.

The awards, which is supported by Womenintechnology.co.uk, celebrates the success of women working in the technology sector, and aims to encourage more women into the industry by highlighting successful role models.

It is free to enter the awards, and women can be nominated for a number of categories.

These include the 'Rising Star' category, which is for women under 26 who are excelling in their technology careers, 'Team Leaders' in an SME with fewer than 500 employees and 'Leaders' in a corporate organisation with more than 500 employees.

Innovators, entrepreneurs and women who actively promote women in the industry can also be recognised.

Earlier this year, winners included Christine Hodgson, executive chairman of Capgemini UK, who wan the award for Woman of the Year 2011. In addition, Stephanie Nicolaou, an ICT systems analyst at Agusta Westland Helicopters, won the rising star award. She was credited with helping the company save millions of pounds through her work on data clean-up and development projects.

The deadline for nominations, which can be placed here, is 25 November.

An awards ceremony announcing the winners will be held at The Savoy in London on 29 March 2012.
