The starting gun has long gone off and the votes are flooding in for the People’s Choice category in this year’s B&T Women in Media Awards (presented by Are Media), but who is leading the race?
Well, we’ve crunched the numbers to find out the frontrunners for this prestigious title, because we know you’re all a very competitive bunch!
Building a nice lead is Kate Toon from StayTooned, with Sophie Muir of Maven PR in hot pursuit.
There is little between third (Denise Barnes, Man of Many) and fourth (Stela Todorovic, 10 ViacomCBS) at the moment, but the gap starts to widen at fifth, where Abigail Charlesworth (AKQA Media) is well-placed but with work to do.
