Once again, Awakening are holding their Female Muay Thai Awards. This is the second year for the awards and you can read my post on last year’s here. The wonderful thing about these awards is that they are community nominated and voted, which means that previously ‘unknown’ fighters can be brought forward. So, when you vote, you can not only give credit to your favourite figures in female Muay Thai, but also discover new ones. As a result, the awards are completely inclusive and recognise all female fighters. The lovely people behind Awakening are so passionate about building and promoting a community of female fighters and I’m thankful for all the hard work that they do.
The awards seem to have grown since last year, creating a bigger response and collecting many more nominations. Last year, there were 15 nominations for the ‘Female Fighter of the Year‘ award. This year, there are 41 fighters to choose from. That’s a huge improvement. It’s great to see that there’s been a bigger response this year. There’s now an additional category for the ‘Sponsor of the Year‘ award, and I’m also very happy to say that my name was put forward as a nomination for the ‘Journalist of the Year‘ award this year.
Voting closes on 30th December. After you submit your votes, be sure to verify them by email (a link will be sent to the email address you provide on the voting page), otherwise they won’t be counted.
