Awards celebrating the achievements of the north west’s business women have attracted more entries than ever this year.
Entries for the Enterprise Vision Awards are now closed and the process of choosing those making it through to the final begins.
We’ve really seen an increase in entries this year in all categories of the awards which is fantastic! It’s great to see so many women recognising the importance of entering and how these awards can make a difference to their lives.Coral Horn
All categories of the awards saw an increase in entries; Business Woman of the Year saw a surge in established women in business entering whilst the Inspirational Woman of the Year category received the most entries overall.
This particularly tough category will now see only six women going through to the final.
Coral Horn of the Pink Link Ladies networking group and MD of the EVAs said: “We’ve really seen an increase in entries this year in all categories of the awards which is fantastic! It’s great to see so many women recognising the importance of entering and how these awards can make a difference to their lives.
“The calibre of entries has also been particularly high and we have a tough job on our hands choosing those going through to the final.”
The EVAs roadshow – which visited the cities of Preston, Liverpool, Blackpool, and Manchester to raise awareness of the importance of entering the awards for women in business in the North West – were a huge success.
Former The Apprentice finalist Claire Young will be the MC for this year’s awards ceremony which will take place on Friday, September 25, at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.
She said: “I’m really looking forward to hosting the final this year and to really shine a light on these amazing women who are doing big things in business. It’s going to be a great night of celebration.”
Launched in 2011, the EVAs provides women with the opportunity to be recognised for their achievements
