Tara has a clear passion for her work “We’ve invested a lot into the technology behind the Venus Awards, to make it as quick and simple as possible, for both those nominating and those finding themselves nominated,” explained Tara.

Venus Awards has been recognising and rewarding women since 2009 with the event expanding into 8 regions across the country.  Talking about the impressive growth of the Awards, Tara, herself a business woman and mother of four, commented; “It really is inspiring to see how much support and enthusiasm there is for the awards and what a difference they can make.  I’ve even had past winners confess to me that the awards have changed their lives – that’s really powerful, and drives me forward to expand, and launch the awards in new regions to recognise more deserving women.”

      Hi Genny

      Voting is not open at the moment. We do just one week of voting per region – the voting for Southampton has been and gone. Most of the categories do not go to the public vote. I do hope that helps.

    Thanks but why is the voting link still on the website? And why is there a big “Vote Now!” tab on your home page!? I also want to point out that there is no information about when the vote is actually open.
