Hill Dickinson announced as main sponsor for Merseyside Women of the Year Awards

LAW firm Hill Dickinson has been announced as the new headline sponsor for the Merseyside Women of the Year Awards (MWOTY) 2022, with nominations for this year’s ceremony now officially open.

The MWOTY awards will return to the Crowne Plaza in Liverpool City Centre on Friday 1st July.

Known for shining a spotlight on those women who do not seek the limelight or push themselves to the front, but instead work to make a difference to the people, sectors and communities they serve, the awards have grown in popularity and impact since Founding Director and inaugural ‘Woman of the Year’, Ellie Kerr, took over their organisation in 2010.

Ellie said: “We have waited a long time to come back together and this year’s awards are set to be the most eagerly-anticipated and spectacular yet. Over the past two years we have seen some truly incredible women doing amazing work to support their communities, keep businesses afloat and people employed through unprecedented times of difficulty – these awards will be when we honour them.

“It will also be an opportunity to celebrate our own missed milestones, such as our 10th anniversary, which passed in 2020. We are absolutely overjoyed and proud to welcome Hill Dickinson as our headline sponsor for this very special year.”

Speaking on behalf of Hill Dickinson, partner, Kerstie Skeaping, said: “As a law firm employing 850 people, we are committed to being an inclusive employer that women – and men – want to work for.

“These awards have earned their place as one of the highlights of the awards calendar and we are proud to lend our name to them as headline sponsor.”

Nominations for the annual independent awards ceremony are now open, with a range of categories including Arts & Culture, Business Leader, Community Change, Entrepreneur, Inspirational, Social Impact, Women’s Group, Business Start-Up, Women Making a Difference, Rising Star and Young Female Apprentice.

The overall Merseyside Woman of the Year 2022 will be selected from all finalists, following a public vote (contributing 50% of the overall score) and being marked by the organisation’s judging panel against its criteria, which can be viewed here, contributing the remaining 50% of the final score.      

The final deadline for nominations is Sunday 24th April. You can nominate online or via email. If you find it difficult to nominate in this way due to disability or other reason, please contact us at or call 07966 308 405.
