The search is on for the top female entrepreneurs in the Highlands to represent the region in the Business Women Scotland Business Awards.
This year's key themes are collaboration and sustainability, marked by two new awards reflecting the ways business has been forced to change since the start of the pandemic.
Also new for this year is women in tech while more established categories range from rising star of the year and established business of the year to inspirational woman of the year.
Supported by Scotland Can-Do, Business Gateway, STV, DigitalBoost and Azure Global, the seventh Business Women Scotland Business Awards will be held online on November 19, but potential entrants have only until September 3 to put their name forward for any of the categories.
The overall winner of the awards, selected by the judging panel, will receive the prize of a two-week airtime campaign with Go Radio and production of a commercial.
