The 2011 Exquisite Lady of the Year (ELOY) Awards nominees are

 It all started in 2009, a long conceived idea came to life, the Exquisite Lady of the Year (ELOY) awards, conceptualized and executed by Exquisite Magazine, led by its publisher Tewa Onasanya.
It got bigger and better in October 2010 at the Landmark Village in Victoria Island where Teju Babyface and Kemi Ajumobi hosted the exquisite guests at the second edition of the Exquisite Lady of the Year awards.
Now, it’s that time of the year when plans are in top gear as we approach the third edition of the Exquisite Lady of the Year (ELOY) awards 2011.

The spotlight is beaming on women. It is evident in Nigeria and around the world, as policy makers and business support organizations are waking up to the idea that women are essential for the economic prosperity of the nation. Financial institutions, the government and others are recognizing the potential of women. The aim of ELOY Awards is recognize and award outstanding women in Nigeria. From their humble beginnings, all the nominees have blossomed to become people other women and men admire and emulate while striving for success.

The ELOY awards focuses on the character of the individual, her ability and achievements and how her work impacts the Nigerian society.
This year’s ELOY is scheduled to take place on Sunday 23rd October 2011 at the Incubator with the Business Seminar themed ‘Tools for Business Survival in Nigeria’. In addition to the seminar and awards event, there will be pre-ELOY dinner on Saturday 22nd October 2011. The after-party for the ELOY awards will take place after the awards ceremony at CHROME.
