The WIL Awards are like no other. They are specifically to highlight the achievements of the WIL community and its supporters. We want to seek out and celebrate the things you achieved in 2020. They may be large or small but we still want to know and share them with the world. We want you to nominate people that you think did something special in 2020 under the categories of Achievement, Initiatives and Supporters.
Maybe it’s someone who supports you, someone who inspires you, someone new to lighting, someone who had a great idea or started an initiative. Nominees and nominators can be from any gender or gender identity - as long as it fits the ideology of the WIL project. Let’s get these special people some recognition and together, acknowledge their achievements.
Some of our ambassadors have agreed to create a panel to pick out some high achievers, top supporters and favourite initiatives that we can honour in more detail. Tell us who rose above the challenges of 2020 and did something unique. Submit your nomination here. Remember, although we will choose some nominations to honour further, everyone nominated is a winner. If you are nominated you have made a difference in someones life and we celebrate you :-)

Luna Lighting - Dañiel Luna-FullerDesigner, Engineer, Management / United States
I am nominating Dañiel Luna-Fuller because she is such a strong woman in the industry. She went from being in military to owning her own lighting design company. And has accomplished so much in her business since it opened.
Helena GentiliDesigner / Brasil
I've decided to nominee Helena for 2 main reason. First of all for her resilience against professional and life adversity. And secondly, for her abilities as a professional and WIL supporter as well. Both skills that I've always admired.
David GilbeyDesigner, Educator, Researcher / Italy
David is the essence of real humanity. He always inspires and supports both men and women in the lighting world to truly believe in themselves. He continues to make a positive difference to so many people’s lives.
