For the second year, Stylist and Clarins are celebrating women in charitable endeavours.

As a boom in innovative, female-led, not-for-profit organisations rewrites our image of charity work, Stylist and Clarins have joined forces to find the UK’s most visionary charity pioneer helping the next generation and beyond – and award her £30,000 to further the project.

Forming part of Clarins’ prestigious international award Prix Clarins, our winner will join a hall of fame of the best non-profit initiatives in 14 countries across four continents.

“Our objective is as clear and simple today as it was when we originally created this award,” say Christian and Olivier Courtin-Clarins of the Clarins family. “And that is to honour women making a difference to the next generation and beyond. We want to inspire more women worldwide to continue this work to help change tomorrow.”

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 interviews with our judging panel, including Stylist editor Susan Riley, Clarins public-relations director Shoshana Gillis, TV presenter Cherry Healey and Stylist columnist Lucy Mangan.

The winner will be awarded her trophy and cheque at a ceremony in London, and celebrated with a feature in Stylist.
