We’re delighted to announce the shortlist of nominees for the inaugural Precious Lifestyle Awards.
The awards celebrate the achievements of women of colour across 12 creative sectors.
In its inaugural year, the awards have attracted hundreds of online votes participating in the process of rooting for women of colour – many of whom are often overlooked in similar categories in mainstream awards.
Now twenty-one fabulous women have been shortlisted for a chance to win a Precious Lifestyle Award as selected by the public in 7 out of the 12 categories.
The winners will be announced in true celebratory style at the exclusive members club, The Curtain, on Tuesday 24th July 2018.
PRECIOUS Awards and PRECIOUS Lifestyle Awards founder, Foluke Akinlose MBE commented: “I send huge congratulations to everyone shortlisted. We are so proud to be celebrating some of the most exciting creative brands, services and voices for and by women of colour. I know we have just tapped the tip of the iceberg, women of colour are among the most creative and innovative individuals in the world and we cannot wait to share the names of our winners. I urge everyone to support the growth of these products and services by buying and talking about them. I look forward to toasting these success stories at the awards ceremony on 24th July.”
