NOMINATIONS FOR THE 11th ANNUAL PRECIOUS AWARDS

The annual PRECIOUS Awards is the biggest event in the PRECIOUS calendar, now in its 11th year. We are passionate about recognising success in the workplace and inspiring women of colour to launch their own businesses.

 

Association with the PRECIOUS Awards is a powerful way to get stories of success heard, recognised and applauded. The Awards, growing in stature with each passing year, attracts an audience of the influential to the aspirational, across all sections of society from Theresa May, Nick Clegg, Baroness Amos to the thousands of dedicated and avid PRECIOUS fans, eager to celebrate inspiring women.

 

Winners and finalists of PRECIOUS Awards stand out from the crowd; the distinction sends a resoundingly positive message to customers and attracts new business. The PRECIOUS Awards is supported by the wider business community, government and the press, and brings credibility and honour to all category nominees.

 

All entries are judged by a panel of top business people, thereby increasing the visibility of the nominee. PRECIOUS is proud to applaud and highlight the enterprise and innovation of women of colour, who rank among the brightest of stars contributing to contemporary UK plc.

 

Closing date:  9th June 2017, 6pm

CEREMONY

ABOUT THE PRECIOUS AWARDS

In January 2017 UK PM Theresa May said “These awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the substantial contribution of Black and Asian female entrepreneurs. I am pleased to know of the support you give to women of colour in the business and work environment, and your work to create and celebrate vital role models through your awards.” David Cameron described the Awards as “vital”.

 

Many of our previous winners have gone on to further success after picking up a PRECIOUS Award, Bianca Miller; our Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2014, has gone on to hack into the fashion sector with her redefining nude brand of tights. Our Entrepreneur of the Year 2010 Geeta Sidhu, founder of organic food delivery Nosh Detox, has gone on to build a million pound turnover business. Looking to the future and conscious of the impact of the Awards in creating role models, Foluke Akinlose MBE, founder, expanded the Awards in 2015 to encompass The PRECIOUS GIRLS Awards profiling the achievement of girls aged 10-15.

The PRECIOUS Awards, founded in 2007 to celebrate and applaud the professional achievements of women of colour in the UK, has a dynamic, passionate, grassroots following, this is down to a decade of bringing brilliant, often media-marginalised, women of colour into the spotlight.

 

The Awards celebrate the best of British, recognising exceptional determination, innovation, entrepreneurial skills and talent across multiple categories. Consequently, the Awards have prompted successive UK Prime Ministers, and leading political voices from across the political spectrum, to passionately proclaim their support and admiration.

 

 

 

I am pleased to know of the support you give to women of colour in the business and work environment, and your work to create and celebrate vital role models through your awards."
