W&H exclusively announce the shortlist for The Hotter Community Hero Awards – VOTE NOW!

It’s time to celebrate the brilliant women aged 50 or above inspiring us in every part of life.


The Amazing Women Awards 2019, in partnership with Hotter, debuted in April of this year. And in October woman&home will present 10 pioneering women over 50 with an Amazing Women Award in a glittering ceremony at London’s glamorous Claridges.

First launched in 2018, the awards celebrate 50+ women in all walks of life from high-profile celebrities and role models at the top of corporate environments, to women doing exciting things and fulling their dream.

Last year we were blown away by the winners and shortlisted nominees – and we celebrated with a glittering ceremony in London’s Claridge’s, which we can say hand on heart was our best night out of the year – from moving speeches and rousing cheers to dancing round our handbags until the early hours.

DJ and radio presenter Jo Whiley, 53, acted as compere – just the kind of women who could feature on the Amazing Women’s Award Shortlist – and dazzled the crowd with her confidence and approachability, adding to the already electric atmosphere.

This year’s awards are set to be equally as exciting, and the Hotter Community Hero Awards, are listed as below with three nominees in each category.
