For the third consecutive year, the Arab Woman Awards will pay tribute to the inspirational and high-achieving women of Qatar this October.

Launched by publishing group ITP in 2009, the Arab Woman Awards are considered to be among the most prestigious award ceremonies that recognise Arab women’s achievements in different fields such as business, arts, medicine and charity.

The 2014 winners will be awarded at a red-carpet dinner ceremony, which will be held at Intercontinental Doha – The City on October 20 in association with Tanagra, Sayidaty and the Qatari Businesswomen Association.

The 2014 Arab Woman Awards Qatar will be hosted by Al Jazeera anchor Fairouz Ziani.

The awards have gained prominence over the years, with a well-founded presence in Qatar, the UAE, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. To date, the awards have recognised the achievements of more than 200 women and paid homage to the ambitious personalities who, through their determination and dedication, provide positive role models for younger generations.

This year’s judges board will be chaired by Bothaina al-Ansari, HR director at Ooredoo and board member of the Qatar Businesswomen Association, and include Dr Eiman al-Ansari, director of National Development at Sidra Medical and Research Centre; Mishael al-Ansari, Marketing and Communication director at the Anti-Doping Lab, Qatar; Aisha al-Bedded, creative director of Darz Designs; Amal al-Athem, visual arts expert at the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage; and Nadine El Chaer, chief editor of Ahlan! Arabia.

Al-Ansari, the honorary chairperson, said: “I am honoured to be part of the Arab Woman Awards again this year to celebrate the accomplishments and abilities of Qatar’s women. The awards are a testament to the development of women in our society and the recognition of their achievement is an important step in encouraging and supporting their journey. Arab women have played an instrumental role in their respective societies and earned all the recognition they so heartily deserve.”

The winners of this year’s Arab Woman Awards Qatar will be nominated by members of the Judges Board who have been selected by ITP based on their integrity, expertise in their field and for being respected members of society.

The Judges Board will follow the strict criteria provided by ITP, which include the nominees’ achievements in the past 12 months and the impact of their work on Qatar in order to make their final selection of winners.
