The Prix Monte-Carlo “Woman and Sport,” under the High Patronage of Prince Albert of Monaco and under the Honorary Presidency of Princess Charlene, is an international award aimed at celebrating women from various parts of the world and various fields, who, thanks to their personal or professional actions, have had a positive impact on their own lives or on the lives of others.
The seventh edition of the award, created by the journalist Cinzia Sgambati-Colman in 2012, will take place on Monday, May 14 in Monaco, sponsored by Walgreens Alliance Boots, the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise in the world. The venue is Salle de la Mer, Fairmont Monte-Carlo.
This year the judging Committee will review the applications and will select two winning candidates, who will receive the award in a ceremony during the gala dinner.
As in past editions, the Committee will award two prizes: the first candidate will be rewarded for outstanding international projects and the second candidate will be recognised for her amazing initiatives within the Principality of Monaco.
