When you’re self-employed and wearing all the hats in your business, there’s often no time left in the day to celebrate your achievements. But you deserve a moment to revel in just how far you’ve come.
Which is why we launched #GigSuperStars – a fun competition that’s all about celebrating the diverse talents, skill sets, and biz super stars from the Aussie self-employed community.
The concept is simple: the community nominates, the nominees fill out an official nomination, and 10 winners emerge – each with a small, but super handy prize that celebrates their journey.
And this time around we’re celebrating the ever so eloquent copywriters.
The thing is, we had so.many.incredible entries that we simply couldn’t limit it to the usual 10 winners – we’ve instead, extended it to 15!
So today, we celebrate these 15 winners from our community (in no particular order)...

Nyree is a lifelong writer and word nerd turned SEO copywriter burning it up (quite literally) in the Top End.
