HELLO! is delighted to announce that our third annual Star Women Awards will be taking place this year, when we will celebrate some of Britain's most inspirational women at a very special and unique ceremony.
Star Women 2020 will this year be a digital event, and we will be expanding on last year's emotional stories of hope, community and inspiration by recognising six very worthy women who have all shown incredible selflessness and a desire to help others.

Each category puts a well-deserved spotlight on the women whose talents and drive have brought together their communities or inspired others through their bravery, kindness and initiative. Three out of the six awards – including Star Mum, in association with leading British luxury childrenswear retailer Childrensalon - will be voted on by you, our readers, with all winners announced during the first week of December on our website hellomagazine.com and in the December 7th issue of the magazine.
Along with some very special guests, our Star Women will be honoured via video presentations alongside glowing commentary from our host, returning to the Star Women podium, the venerable Kate Silverton.

The categories for this year's awards include the Star Mum Award, in association with Childrensalon, which will see readers of HELLO! nominate a shortlist of mothers who have gone and above and beyond to help and inspire others. To nominate an amazing mum, click here.
Building on our successful #hellotokindness campaign, a social media movement to encourage gentleness on the internet which has garnered the backing of Sarah, Duchess of York and the Beckhams, the #hellotokindness award is the second category where readers will decide on a shortlist of nominees. It will recognize those who have used their talent and initiative to make others feel special or brought attention to a special charity that might otherwise slip under the radar; or perhaps an individual who is making waves showing kindness to our planet, in the areas of environmentalism or sustainability. Nominate someone you know right here.
