50 Over 50 Awards: celebrating amazing women making a difference

Grown-up women are amazing - a fact we're celebrating!

Here at woman&home we recognise that midlife women are, finally, having their moment.

Which is why we launched our 50 Over 50 Awards in partnership with JD Williams, a fabulous initiative celebrating all those midlife women making a difference.

There are 10 categories in total, covering everything from the UK’s sharpest female business minds to the midlife blogs we love to visit online. Excitingly, they also include two reader-nominated categories. You can discover more about the various categories below.

Over the coming months, we’ll be revealing the shortlisted women in each of the 10 categories in the magazine and online. We’ll then invite you, our readers, to cast your vote in each category before the overall winners are revealed at a event this autumn.
