In partnership with Clarins, we’re searching for the UK’s most promising female charity pioneer

It’s not only big brands or cool commercial start-ups who are paying it forward. As an explosion in innovative, female-led, not-for-profit organisations rewrite our image of what charity work looks like, Stylist and Clarins have joined forces to discover the UK’s most visionary charity pioneer – and award her £30,000 to further the project.

Forming part of Clarins’ prestigious international award, Prix Clarins, our winner will join a global hall of fame of the very best not-for-profit initiatives spanning 14 countries across four continents. “Our objective is as clear and simple today as it was when we originally created this award 20 years ago in France,” say Christian and Olivier Courtin-Clarins of the Clarins family. “And that is to honour women who are making a difference to the next generation and beyond. We want to inspire many more women around the world to continue this work today to help change the futures of tomorrow.”

This year, we want to hear from you

As well as the £30,000 prize fund, our winner will be given a bespoke mentoring programme from Stylist and Clarins experts, tailored to the specific needs of her project and skill set. Shortlisted entrants will be invited to London for face-to-face interviews with our judging panel including Stylist acting editor Susan Riley, Clarins public relations director Shoshana Gillis and Stylist columnist Lucy Mangan, while the winner will be awarded her trophy and cheque at a ceremony in London, and celebrated with a feature in Stylist.
