elloy
2016 so far has been a phenomenal year for women all around the world. We have seen the 1st ever Female US Presidential Candidate, the 1st Female UK Prime Minister in power since the late 80s, the 1st Nigerian Female President of a major US television network, the 1st Female Nigerian Chancellor and let’s not forget the female athletics in Rio, the Nigerian Female rower, who was exceptional at the Olympics. 
It’s that time again when we as a community welcome & recognise a new host of brilliantly skilled women who are making an impact in their respective industries.

It’s time to applaud their tenacity, guts and passion.

It’s time to lift them up so that one day you too will be lifted up by the people whose lives you have impacted on.

It’s time for the 8th edition of the Exquisite Ladies of the Year (ELOY) Award.

The aim as always is to be able to continue to inspire, motivate and empower women, celebrate our successes and show that it can be done. Our distinguished judges were carefully selected and they embody ladies who are doing exceptionally well in their chosen fields and are great examples of strong women doing great things. We want other women to be inspired by these women and strive to be the best they can be.
This year, our theme is “all women are worth celebrating”. We want to know any woman in any community, workplace, field or anywhere that is doing great work, we want to celebrate those women. That is why the CEMI (Celebrate, Empower, Motivate and Inspire) honours has been created to celebrate these women. The celebrations will be done all through the months running up to the ELOY awards 2016. We ask everyone to send us names and reasons why we should celebrate their nominees. These set of nominees are different from the nominees for the ELOY awards.

Tewa Onasanya, founder of The ELOY Awards announced on Friday 26th of August that Eloy is now accepting entries for its 8th edition.
