Celebrating another successful year for women and girls across sport, Brand Oath created the look and feel for the sixth Scottish Women in Sport Awards (SWIS) in Glasgow on Friday (8 November).

The popular annual gala awards, fundraising event and dinner returned to the GoGlasgow Urban Hotel, with Brand Oath again producing printed and digital assets for the showpiece occasion to continue their support for SWIS.

The glittering evening, staged in partnership with the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), was hosted by leading broadcaster Alison Walker and celebrated, recognised and rewarded the achievements of female athletes and respective support staff and volunteers.

Star guests included Judy Murray, one of Scotland’s best sporting ambassadors, and victorious European Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew.

In 2019, Scotland again shone on the world stage across female sport, notably in boxing, athletics, golf, hockey and football.

On the night, awards were present awards in 10 different categories, with Hannah Rankin, the first-ever Scottish female world champion at IBO super-welterweight in boxing, securing the UWS Sportswoman of the Year title.

The SWIS Inspiration in Sport award went to Cerys McCrindle, a 17-year-old swimmer with down syndrome who has represented Team GB.

Maureen McGonigle, Founder and CEO of Scottish Women in Sport, said: “There was a room full of inspirational women, each changing the landscape for women and girls on a day-to-day basis. The category sponsor judging panel met a few weeks previously and faced really difficult choices, which shows the depth and breadth of the culture change in sport.

“The evening would not be possible without our partner UWS and our category sponsors, as well as Brand Oath for the amazing branding. Many thanks to those who continue to support the event.”
