Who do you think should win the Mum of the Year award?

happy mum and daughter
Woman’s Way and Beko have teamed up for the third year to search for nominations to crown Ireland’s number one mums. The largest most recognised national awards celebrating motherhood, the Mum of the Year Awards is now in its 15th year. This year, the Woman’s Way & Beko Mum of the Year Awards will be honouring new mums, generational mums, those who have overcome adversity, inspirational and transformational mums. What they have in common is the difference they’ve made to their partners, families, friends and/or communities. 
 
As well as the overall Mum of the Year, Woman’s Way and Beko are also seeking nominations for first-time mothers, from mums across the generations, mums who inspire with their courage, mumpreneurs who are making a difference, mums who reach out through social media to create communities and mums from the world of celebrity, who are great role models. 
Woman’s Way and Beko are seeking nominations from anyone who knows an exceptional mum. She could be your mum – birth, foster, step or adoptive – wife, partner, sister, daughter, friend or a community worker. 
 
The 2018 award categories are:
  • The Overall Mum of the Year - a nominee who has channelled adversity into something positive, a true role model.
  • The Inspirational Mum of the Year - a nominee who has encouraged or motivated others in decision making.
  • The Mumpreneur of the Year - a nominee who has set up and runs her own business in addition to caring for her children 
  • The Social Media Champion of the Year - a nominee who has used social media for the benefit of others – charity or fundraising for example. 
  • The Generation of Mums Award - grandmother, mother and daughter – who work in the same industry or are involved in similar initiatives.
  • The New Mum of the Year - a nominee who has recently become a mum.
  • The Transformational Mum of the Year - a nominee who has transformed herself, her family or her community.
  • The Celebrity Mum of the Year - a nominee in the spotlight.
To nominate a mum that deserves recognition, Woman’s Way and Beko are calling on readers to complete the nomination form in the current issue of Woman’s Way or to visit www.womansway.ie to nominate online. The closing date for entries is April 30, 2018. 
 
Winners will be chosen to attend a special lunch in the summer and will receive a host of luxury treats worth €500.
