In its fifth consecutive year of the Venus Awards in Devon and with the new addition of Cornwall, the response remains consistently strong with over 1750 nominations and 500 applications.

The Venus Awards – dubbed by Channel 4 as “The Working Women’s Oscars” – celebrate the vital contribution that women in business make to the local, regional and national economy, and are unique in that anyone can nominate a friend, client or family member.

The Devon and Cornwall participants are competing in 15 categories including Inspirational Woman in STEMM, Small Business, Networker, Influential Woman, Company, Customer Service and the ever popular category of Business Mother.

Regional Partner, Alexis Bowater, said of the awards,

“I’m absolutely delighted to be taking the Venus Awards into Cornwall this year and increasing the reach of these business awards across the Tamar. It was another fantastic turnout and we are thrilled to congratulate our Nominees and Semi-Finalists. Once again we are celebrating some of the region’s most inspirational women and their achievements in their industry and I can’t wait to meet the Semi Finalists again.”

This year’s Charity Sponsor is St Luke’s Hospice. St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth is an independent charity providing specialist care and support to people with progressive life-limiting illnesses in Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall.

The Devon and Cornwall Venus Awards 2018 in association with Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management and partnership with Alexis Bowater from Bowater Communications will culminate in a glamorous Ceremony and Gala Dinner on the 27th April 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Plymouth.
