To nominate, state your case about why your candidate is deserving and tell us a bit about her background, reputation, previous honors and capabilities. If there is an interesting back story on your candidate, tell us. We ask for contact information for your candidate, yourself and any PR contacts for the nominee. Honorees can be from any type of company or discipline as long as they are making an impact in marketing, advertising or media. But please remember that this is not a lifetime achievement award. We are looking for recent accomplishments, challenges and successes. Many submissions are too general to be considered. The key to a successful nomination is to be as specific as possible.
To get an idea of the kind of information we’re looking for, click here to see last year’s Women to Watch Europe honorees and their stories (and so you don’t nominate anyone who was honored in 2016).
We will celebrate 20 women from the U.K. and other major markets in Western Europe.
The deadline for nominations is Monday, January 23. A team of editors will review all your submissions and research nominees, and will also consider candidates not nominated through the submission process.
Winners will be notified and interviewed in February and March, and profiled in an Advertising Age special report honoring the Women to Watch Europe class of 2017 both in print and online on AdAge.com in April.
The second annual Women to Watch Europe gala dinner will be held in early June in London.
