The organisers of the Precious Lifestyle Awards are proud to announce the amazing women who have made the 2018 shortlist featuring 12 creative sectors. The awards will celebrate excellence amongst women of colour in true celebratory style at the exclusive members club, The Curtain, on Tuesday 24th July 2018. To celebrate the shortlist announcement, get 25% off your awards ticket using ‘shortlist’ – but hurry, discount ends 6pm this Friday (13th July 2018).

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. Twenty-one fabulous women have today been shortlisted for a chance to win a Precious Lifestyle Award as selected by the general public in 7 out of the 12 categories.

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 amongst the most creative and innovative individuals in the world and we cannot wait to share the names of our winners. I encourage 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.”

The Tea & Biscuits Podcast has made the shortlist for ‘Podcast Of The Year’. A big thank you to those who voted for us during the long list stage.
