The Evening Times’ Scotswoman of the Year is a unique celebration of the accomplishments of woman across Scotland.
We are once again delighted to show our support to the unsung women who make the world a better place. These awards provide the perfect opportunity to once again recognise the talents and achievements of some of our nation’s most remarkable women.
From top flight businesswomen to compassionate carers, from scientists working on lifesaving breakthroughs to teachers nurturing tomorrow’s leaders, from record breaking sportswomen to your local lollipop lady, the aim of the event is to acknowledge our debt for their, often, selfless and unacknowledged hard work.
Scotland has many inspirational women in many walks of life. And it is right and fitting that we celebrate and honour their work and contributions. Every one of our winners over the decades has been an outstanding individual.
And what better way to pay tribute to these truly inspirational women than at the Scotswoman of Year Awards.
This year we are launching a new category to secure the legacy of SWOTY. We want to find the first ever Young Scotswoman of the Year. Our exciting new category is open to girls and young females between the ages of 12 and 21.
The Evening Times is proud that we have celebrated their contributions for more than half a century and we look forward to doing so for many years to come.
