blakINwite’s Most Influential Woman by People’s Choice 2022: Here’s what you should know about our first awards
We’re extremely thrilled to bring you our very first award, blakINwite’s Most Influential Woman by People’s Choice, where voting will be open for the public!
Since our founding day in March 2021, we’ve dedicated ourselves to inspiring and empowering our fellow female communities with the success stories of female entrepreneurs, women in business, and young talents who have chased their dreams and are doing what they are most passionate about. Sometimes all it takes for us to find purpose and motivation is the inspiration behind the stories of others. Unveiling the stories of those who rise after falling and those with the ambition to challenge their struggles, those with dreams they continue to chase and who make the world a better place.
In addition, we interview and share the stories of these inspiring women with the aim to celebrate their success with them and others. In further celebration of their success, we’ve decided to bring on our very first awards and have selected a few women who have previously been featured in our magazine to participate in this voting competition.
Voting for the selected nominees will be open from Monday, 6 June 2022 until Friday, 17 June 2022, allowing voters twelve days to vote for who they think should win the title! The winner will be announced on Monday, 20 June 2022.
The winner of this competition will be placed on the cover of the upcoming edition of blakINwite titled blakINwite’s Most Influential Woman of 2022, a follow up interview and story within the same edition, free advertising on our website for two months, and the option to receive a free NFT piece from entrepreneur and NFT artist Maya Hamad.
The voting link will be available on blakINwite and our nominees’ social media channels.
