The ToyNews Women of the Year 2015 networking and awards event will take place on Thursday, July 16th at Home House, London.

This year, we have extended the event so that we are able to honour a further three women, as well as our overall Woman of the Year. We've added three new categories: Rising Star, Innovator and Marketeer.

What happens next?

Well, the industry itself is being invited to choose the winners from this year's Top 100. The full list is below, or you can click here to visit our dedicated website.

We will also be profiling each of the Top 100 online starting from Wednesday, May 27th to help you decide on your votes.

If you believe that someone on the list is worthy of one of the four accolades, simply let us know your thoughts by emailing toynewswoty@nbmedia.com. You have until Monday, June 15th to cast your vote.

Please note, to be considered for Rising Star, candidates should either be under 30 OR have been in the toy industry for less than three years.

The Women of the Year 2015 event is open to all of our Top 100, as well as their colleagues, peers and other industry executives (male or female) – and we hope as many of you as possible will join us to celebrate the achievements of the Top 100.

Tickets are just £50 (+VAT), including free drinks and a buffet lunch. Book directly right now by clicking here or contact Jess Farnan on jfarnan@nbmedia.com or 01992 535646.
