Enter the Derby & Derbyshire Inspirational Women Awards, 2015

Inspirational Women Awards 2015, closes 17 January

Nominations for Derby & Derbyshire Inspirational Women Awards, 2015, are now open. The Awards were founded by Vox Feminarum:Women's Voices (VoxFemme for short) to recognise, celebrate and thank the 'ordinary' women of every age and from every walk of life, who are doing and achieving, extraordinary things. These often unsung HERoes, regularly go unnoticed and unrecognised and we just want to extend a big thank you, for all they have done, and continue to do. 

Awards Categories

The public are invited to nominate Inspirational Women in the following categories:

  •  Inspirational Woman in the Arts or Sports Sectors
  •  Inspirational Woman in Community, Voluntary or Charity Sector
  •  Inspirational Woman in Education or Health Sectors
  •  Inspirational Woman Entrepreneur or in the Business Sector
  •  Inspirational Woman Lifetime Achievement Award*
  •  Inspirational Woman Local Government or Politics
  •  Inspirational Mum/Mother Figure (men can be nominated in this category)
  •  Inspirational Woman Under 25

Additional Award Category - Overall Inspirational Woman Award -  will be selected from a shortlist drawn up by a panel of judges.
