The 2013 Sunday Times and Sky Sports Sportswomen of the Year Awards have been launched, giving you the opportunity to nominate your favourite sportswomen of the past nine months.

The Awards celebrate the outstanding contribution to sport made by elite performers, coaches, administrators, community volunteers and inspirational female figures - and 2013 promises to be the most spectacular in the event's 26-year history.

On the evening of Thursday December 5, for the first time, the Awards will be broadcast live by Sky.

Alex Butler, Sunday Times Sports Editor, said: "The Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year Awards have grown in stature since the launch in 1988 and are unique. However, with Sky Sports now involved as co-sponsor and broadcaster, the event has moved to a new level.

"The achievements of British women in sport in 2013 have been phenomenal. Over the coming months - in print in The Sunday Times and on air with Sky Sports - we will celebrate those achievements."

Previous winners of the main award, the coveted Sportswoman of the Year accolade, include Paula Radcliffe, Sally Gunnell, Denise Lewis, Dame Kelly Holmes, Zara Phillips and Victoria Pendleton. Jessica Ennis-Hill, the London 2012 Olympic heptathlon champion, was crowned the overall winner last November.

Once again the awards are supported by the Sport and Recreation Alliance, UK Sport, Sport England and the Women's Sport and Fitness Foundation.

Sky Sports brings you the best news and views from women's sport in a new weekly show, Sportswomen, every Tuesday from 10.30am on Sky Sports News.
