San Diego Magazine’s Annual Celebrating Women Awards are back! It's time to celebrate San Diegans who are making waves and changing the game. Our awards honor standout women or those who identify as female in six (6) categories (Builders, Creators, Activists, Healers, Public Servants, and Moguls), along with San Diego Magazine’s selected Woman of the Year.
A panel of 5-6 unbiased female judges will select between 150 to 250 finalists to be invited to our award ceremony. They will then select one honoree in each category and one Woman of the Year to be presented with an award at the ceremony. In order to keep it a true surprise, each honoree will not be announced until our in-person Celebrating Women Awards Ceremony at the Town & Country Hotel on November 17, 2022. We look forward to receiving your nomination(s) and wish your nominee(s) the best of luck!
