Could your mum be one of our Mums of the Year 2018? 

This year is going to be an extra special year as one woman will be crowned the Woman’s Way and Beko Mum of the Year 2018.

The Mum of the Year Awards is the largest and most recognised national award celebrating mothering, and in its 15th year, has developed new awards to reflect the changing nature of family life in Ireland. This year, the Woman’s Way & Beko Mum of the Year Awards will be honouring new mums, generational mums, those who have overcome adversity, inspirational and transformational mums. What they have in common is the difference they’ve made to their partners, families, friends and/or communities.

As well as the overall Mum of the Year, Woman’s Way and Beko are also seeking nominations for first-time mothers, from mums across the generations, mums who inspire with their courage, mumpreneurs who are making a difference, mums who reach out through social media to create communities and mums from the world of celebrity, who are great role models.

Winners will be chosen to attend a special lunch in the summer and will receive a host of luxury treats worth €500.

Woman’s Way and Beko are seeking nominations from anyone who knows an exceptional mum. She could be your mum – birth, foster, step or adoptive – wife, partner, sister, daughter, friend or a community worker. Is the Mum of the Year 2018 living in your town?
