Voxwomen at the Women’s Sport Trust Be A GameChanger Awards

Posted on

Voxwomen will be at the Women’s Sport Trust Be A GameChanger Awards this evening.

We have been nominated for Media Initiative of the Year at the Women’s Sport Trust Be A GameChanger Awards, up against Sky Sports cricket coverage and the Red Rose England Rugby campaign.

Shortlisted from a selection of nominees by an esteemed panel of judges, the vote was then made open to the public and tonight, we will find out if we have done enough to pick up the top prize.

Founder Anthony McCrossan and team member Kim Keay will be there.

It is an honour to be recognised by the Women’s Sport Trust as we strive to change the game for women’s cycling and female riders all over the world.  We are very proud to be nominated for an award that reflects the very best of women’s sport coverage after just over two years since Voxwomen was created in February 2015.

A huge thank you to anyone who voted for us – fingers crossed!
