EveryWoman Nominees Wanted!
We all know at least one woman whose amazing talents, energy, determination, and style are an inspiration to one and all. Now there’s a way to make sure they get the recognition they deserve, at the 2011 Any Woman Competition™ in Vancouver, BC!
Bright Ideas Event Coordinators Ltd. is proud to announce the 2011 Any Woman Competition™ for British Columbia. This event, to be held on Saturday, June 25 at the Rocky Mountaineer Vancouver Station (1755 Cottrell St. Vancouver) celebrates inspiring women, sharing their unique stories and motivating everyone, man or woman, to tap into the EveryWoman that’s inside them. Open to women ages 18+ this event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to display the inner beauty, talents, philosophy and elegance that makes every participant in the competition a role model worthy of emulation.
Winning the BC competition will qualify BC’s top EveryWoman for the national competition in Toronto, and a chance to win prizes including a year-long contract with a modelling agency and national media exposure!
We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this ground-breaking event and look forward to meeting the many BC EveryWomen we know are out there. In addition to the competition to find BC’s top EveryWoman, we are inviting companies and individuals interested in participating to join us for the seminars, art exhibitions, and trade show planned to accompany the main event.
Success is more than skin deep. Intelligence, compassion, leadership, healthy living – these are the attributes that make a woman truly beautiful. If you know a woman who possesses these qualities, here’s how to nominate them for the 2011 Any Woman competition.
“Recognizing inspirational woman. Changing tomorrow, today”
Bright Ideas Takes Gold at CSEME 2010
Bright Ideas Event Coordinators Ltd added another winning trophy to the awards shelf on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at the British Columbia Event Industry Awards in Vancouver.
Bright Idea’s win came in the ‘Best Event produced for a Corporation’ category. After 12 years of producing this event, we needed to create a fresh, new theme that appealed to both adults and children. Viola! A winner was found with the Rock N Roll Beach BBQ.
Guests were treated to a complete 1950’s experience with Antique Cars, Rock N’ Roll Band, appearances by Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, and a wide range of picnic and drive-in classic dishes to enjoy. The hit of the party were the keepsake crafts – decorated Cat Eye Glasses, Yo-Yos, and Chiffon Scarves.
Bright Ideas Events owner Sharon Bonner said the win is also a credit to her suppliers. “Because we have a great team of people, the whole crew enjoys the work, it goes smoothly, and that makes for a great event for guests and staff.”

Our Top Three Inspiring Women
Mother Teresa made a difference in the lives of the poor, sick, and needy, starting in the slums of Calcutta in the 1950s. Thirty years later, Mother Teresa’s honors included a Nobel Peace Prize, India’s highest civilian honour (the Bharat Ratna) and beatification by Pope John Paul II following her death.
Oprah Winfrey got her start in radio while still in high school. By age 19 she was co-anchoring the local nightly news. Now a household name, Oprah’s influence ranges from pop culture to politics and she continues to be a strong voice for women the world over.
Marie Curie’s life was a series of firsts. She was the first female professor at the University of Paris, the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, the first to study the use of radioactivity for cancer treatments, and her achievements dispelled the idea that research was a man’s world. To this day she remains an inspiration to women who seek a career in the sciences.
