Over the years there has been some truly remarkable women given the accolade for a variety of reasons but in each individual case there is a common thread.

The women have embarked on a campaign whose goal and outcome has been to improve the lives of others, many overcoming adversity in order to do so.

Some have used their fame or position of influence to the advancement of a cause or charity while others have fought tooth and nail to right a wrong or discover a truth.

Last year Dr Mary Hepburn took the prize for decades long career helping pregnant women from deprived areas, setting up services that provided dedicated care for women many suffering addiction and victims of social problems.

This year the search is just beginning and you have the chance to nominate someone who you think has been an inspiration to others in the last year.

The award is open to women in any field of Scottish life, from those who already have a high profile to the women who work away anonymously for the greater good, content in the knowledge they are making a difference.
