2024 Awards – Expression of Interest

Funny Women

Funny Women

We were overwhelmed by the response to last year’s Funny Women Awards and, with over 2,000 entries and nominations, it’s important for us to consider what resources and support we need.

So we’re taking some ‘time out’ before we launch this year and asking for a little help from you.

Please follow this link and complete our ‘Expression of Interest’ survey – it will only take a couple of minutes and the information will help us to decide which Awards we want to run again and maybe introduce some new categories.

Thanks to those of you who’ve already contributed to the survey which some of you completed on the Funny Women stand at the BIG Comedy Conference run by British Comedy Guide and we’ll be adding your feedback to the final review.

More Awards news very soon!
