To receive an invitation to the next Ernie's dinner.


Welcome to the Ernie Awards for Sexist Remarks. This strange institution is now in its 29th year. Each year 300 women come together at a splendid dinner in NSW Parliament House to judge the most sexist remarks by public figures during the previous year.

The nominator of each winning quote carries home a silver Ernie (handsome silver pig on a plinth). The overall winner gets the Gold Ernie (sheep rampant on a golden orb). The winners are chosen by whichever nomination receives the loudest boos. In tight contests, a boo-off is required.

Owing to this pesky virus the 29th Annual Ernies Awards will not be celebrated with a dinner this year but will take place in a scaled down fashion. We have collected your nominations during the year and compiled a short list. A group of ‘Ernies Elders’ (faceless women all of them) will consider this short list and decide on the ultimate winners. We have always wanted to rort the Ernies and now is our chance. The winners will be announced here and in the media as usual.
