Cosmopolitan Australia "Fun Fearless Females" - finalists announced

Cosmopolitan Australia's "Fun Fearless Females" are here for the fifth year running, and the mag again asked readers to vote for who they believe to be the strongest, most inspirational, fun and fearless females in Australia.

Over 218,000 votes - record numbers in the Awards’ history - came flooding in from all corners of the country and were narrowed down to 33 talented and influential finalists across 11 categories.

Here are some of my faves, including singer Sia Furler, DJ Havana Brown, One Teaspoon’s Jamie Blakey, the lovely Natalie Gruzlewski, and the youngest woman ever to serve in the Australian House of Representatives, Kate Ellis.

Now it's down to Cosmo readers to decide who wins in each category, and who walks away with the top title: Woman of the Year (who receives the most votes overall) and $10,000 from the sponsor, Libra. Votes can be cast at http://www.cosmopolitan.com.au/fun-fearless-females/2011/ and the winners will be announced at a glam Awards event held in Sydney’s Catalina restaurant on 27 July. (My picks are all the women featured here, although there are many I like in the same category).

Cosmopolitan’s Fun, Fearless Female awards 2011 are sponsored by Libra, with Libra’s Therese Winterburn saying: “We’re proud to be sponsoring the Cosmopolitan Fun, Fearless Female awards for the first time in 2011. Libra is all about confidence, fun and femininity. We look forward to celebrating the winners in each category.”
