Merseyside Women of the Year 2019 Finalists Revealed
Twenty-six unsung heroines from across the region have been named finalists in the Merseyside Women of the Year awards 2019 and a public vote has been opened to decide the overall Merseyside Woman of the Year.
The annual independent awards ceremony, which will take place on Friday 28 June 2019 at the Crowne Plaza in Liverpool City Centre, will celebrate the achievements of women from across Merseyside in eleven categories, with all finalists being entered into the public vote for the top accolade.
We are proudly supporting the event and the incredible women it celebrates by sponsoring the One To Watch category.
Members of the public can now vote for their Merseyside Woman of the Year via the awards website or postal vote until Monday 10 June 2019.

Rhiannon Carss, Head of Communications at Curtins explains why we are supporting the event: “The passion behind these awards is what enticed us to get involved. They shine a light on exceptional people doing exceptional things, whether in the public eye and with a high profile or not. Celebrating the everyday heroines of our great region is such an important mission. Whether they realise it or not, these individuals are enriching people’s lives and they should be recognised.
“This is our first year supporting MWOTY and it has given us the chance to meet people from different walks of life and to hear and celebrate their incredible stories. Through our sponsorship we want to learn more about local initiatives and how we can work with people in our community to support the great things they are doing.”
Jean Gadsby, from Merseyside Women of the Year Awards, said: “We received a record number of entries this year, which made the voting process incredibly challenging for our judging panel.
“It was a humbling and extremely emotional experience that has culminated in this list of exceptional women, who are all making a real difference to the lives of people and communities in Merseyside and beyond.
“We encourage everyone to learn about their work and vote for their Merseyside Woman of the Year.”
