Nominate A Hero From Your Area

ZimShoppingMalls Heroes
Today marks the day we officially launch the ZimShoppingMalls Heroes!

ZimShoppingMalls encourages you to tell us about these people changing Zimbabwe by nominating them through the nomination entry form. Taking a few minutes of your time to share their story with us could propel them to national and international recognition.

It’s easy to nominate the person whose work you admire. But a thoughtful, well-written nomination is essential to help yours stand out from the thousands we will receive. More specific details of the award ceremony, the venue – date and time, will be shared in February 2017 through Here are some suggestions we hope will help you in crafting your nomination for consideration as a 2017 ZimShoppingMalls Hero.

  • Think about what makes your hero special. Ask yourself: What makes my nominee unique? What specific accomplishment has he or she achieved that is truly remarkable? What impact has his or her work had on others in Zimbabwe? We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the achievements of the inspiring individuals that have been honored by other institutions for their accomplishment in their communities around the globe.
  • Take a look at our nomination requirements below and review the information requested about yourself, your nominee and his or her work before sending us your submission.
  • Tell us about your hero. Take your time and write from the heart. Remember: What you share, in your own words, is the most important factor in advancing a nomination for further consideration. You can submit your complete nomination either through our facebook page or sending an email to us via the above given email address. Please note the information you provide will be used in accordance with our privacy policy.
  • If your nomination has been successfully received, you’ll receive this message ‘Thank you for your nomination. We have received your submission’. This is the only confirmation you will receive. And yes, we read each and every one of the submissions.
