The Inspiring Women Network (IWN) needs candidates for the 2014 inspirational woman of the year award, which will be announced on International Women's Day in March.
The annual prize aims to highlight and honour the achievements of local women in everyday life.
Nour Chakroun, founder and chair of IWN said: “Through this celebratory event we aim to recognise and value women's achievements in their daily lives.
"It’s a community event that we hope will empower us all - and bring women together to meet, share and learn from each other.”
