Women's Campaign Logo

This year we are launching the NUS Women’s Campaign Awards, where students, student groups, and student-led campaigns can gain recognition for their huge achievements in women’s liberation this past year. We hope this becomes an annual tradition which will motivate and inspire women students every year. There are three awards: Campaign of the Year, Inspirational Woman Student of the Year, and Women’s Group/Feminist Society of the Year, all nominated by YOU.


Nominations are open now and close on Monday 25 February. To nominate a woman, campaign, or group, email women@nus.org.uk no more than 1000 words based around the following guidelines. Be aware that these guidelines are not prescriptive and are only to give you guidance on what you may want to include in your nomination.

  • What was the campaign, and what did it aim to achieve for women?
  • How did the campaign demonstrate best practice in planning, communication, team working and evaluation?
  • What did the campaign achieve and what quantifiable impact did it have on women locally or nationally?
  • How did the campaign show creativity in the delivery of campaign objectives through events, activities and communication channels?
  • How did the campaign utilise resources within the student body, local stakeholders and/or the media?

  • What are, and how can you demonstrate the levels of student participation in the group?

Inspirational Woman Student of the Year

  • This can be any self-identifying woman student or officer who has inspired women on your campus.
  • What positive impact have they made for women students this year?
  • How have they led the way in celebrating women’s liberation?
  • What have they done over and above the call of duty and so deserve recognition?
  • Why are they an inspiration and worthy of recognition?



The awards are judged by the National Women’s Officer, a member of NUS staff, and a Women’s Committee member (the latter two are still pending confirmation). Announcement and presentation of the awards will take place at the NUS Women’s Conference, on 5th-6th March.

We look forward to receiving your nominations!
