The 10th edition of the Exquisite Lady of the Year (ELOY) awards is gradually drawing near and preparations are in full gear for the event scheduled to hold on November 25 at the Lagos Continental Hotel, Lagos.
The spotlight is beaming on women as it is evident in Nigeria and around the world, as policymakers, financial institutions, business support organisations and more are waking up to the idea that women are good for the economic prosperity of the nation and they are recognising the untapped potential of women.
In 2009, a long-conceived idea came to life, since then, Exquisite magazine, the organisers of this prestigious awards, led by its publisher Tewa Onasanya, has been consistently celebrating women of excellence in different field to empower as it inspires other women.
“The ELOY Awards is first of its kind to be consistently held in Nigeria. The aim is to have it grow each year as we recognise and award outstanding women and their roles in society.
“From their humble beginnings, they have grown to become people other women and men admire and emulate while striving for success”, Publisher, Exquisite magazine, Tewa Onasanya said.
Every year, the ELOY awards planning committee meet to evaluate the women chosen by the general public to vet and pick the women with the highest nomination, who then make up the nominees list to be voted for by the general public.
This year the voting runs through to November 18, 2018 and some selected categories He4She, ELOY Banking and Finance Award, ELOY Award for Politics and ELOY Lifetime Achievement Award, recipients are chosen by a selected ELOY committee member.
The voting windows are open, and the 2018 ELOY awards nominees can be voted for by the public.
