SheSays awards

SheSays are calling on the industry to put forward nominations for it’s first awards night this June. Nominations will close at midday, Monday 19th May.

SheSays is an award-winning global creative organisation for women, running free mentorship and events. Why? Because they want to see more women at the top. Amen.

On the run-up to the main event (which TWOP will be reviewing), SheSays have asked for nominations of outstanding talent and creative contributors. The awards, launched by SheSays in partnership with Isobar and The Drum, look to champion female diversity and creativity.

The nominations stage will remain open until midday this Monday, 19th May. Voting categories include The Drum’s woman of the year, The Isobar Award: ‘ideas without limits’ that have not been used as part of a campaign, The Industry Award: ideas that have gone live for clients, and The Student Award. To get more information and vote, visit the site here. Entrants must be UK based, female, and from any creative discipline e.g. strategist, creative (or mixed-sex creative teams), account handler.

To mark the inaugural start of the new awards event (previously called ‘Golden Stillettos’), it has been announced that jeweller Clarice Price Thomas will be creating a wearable prize of a precious metal necklace for the the awards winners. Clarice won the brief following a competitive pitch against 3D designers, artists and jewellers earlier this month.
