WIN logoEach year since 1993, Women's Image Network has produced its largest event, The Women's Image Awards to celebrate female AND male media artists whose work advances the value of women and girls.

Investing in women is a uniquely powerful way to strengthen communities and economies. Gender equity fuels thriving economies; it helps women and their families, expands local economies, spurs economic growth, and widens the talent pool.

There is no other organization like Women's Image Network, (WIN), a charity which since 1993 has collaborated with advertising agencies, artists, fortune 100 and 500 companies, television networks and movie studios to create The WIN Awards which honor deserving media and individuals in film, television, advertising, politics and business who promote gender parity through their creativity and leadership.

  • Women represent 53% of the world's population and make 85% of the purchasing decisions, yet according to the UN Development Fund for Women, women perform 66% of work globally and produce a full half of food globally, but women earn 10% of what men earn and own 1% of global property.
  • Just nine women lead countries, of the 190 worldwide heads of state.
  • Women make up 13% of all worldwide Parliaments.
  • In the corporate world women measure 15% of all workers ranging from C-level jobs to corporate board members.

    According to the The Huffington Post 86% of films have no female writers and 77% of film critics are male. This makes the movie industry highly imbalanced.

Since 1993 this charity has leveled the playing field for women and girls. Gender equality and women's empowerment are fundamental to our global mission which is also an economic and social imperative. Until women and girls are liberated from poverty and injustice, peace, security, and sustainable development are in jeopardy.

About Women's Image Network (WIN)
& The WIN Awards

WIN works in concert with research, media advocacy and program implementation to promote gender parity. By celebrating dimensional female media images at The WIN Awards, WIN advances its mission to see women attain social and economic equality.

The WIN Awards (the women's image awards) are an international juried awards show that encourages men and women to create dimensional female media images. By drawing attention and viewers to witness important and entertaining media, we encourage people to value, respect and honor women and girls.

The WIN AwardsThe WIN Awards show is a one of a kind international media event which gathers film and television writers, producers, directors, actors and others. In addition to honoring illustrious individuals whose work promotes gender parity, The WIN Awards also celebrate dozens of nominated films, shows, directors, writers, actors and producers whose work has been submitted to its jury and which has been nominated in 15 categories.

While historically The WIN Awards were presented only to invited individuals, in 2002 television broadcasters and film studios began submitting their outstanding work to The WIN Awards be adjudicated on a competitive basis by an illustrious and professional entertainment industry jury. Today, The WIN Awards show has grown into an international juried show with work evaluated based on both artistic excellence and on its ability to forward WIN’s mission:

About Us item

Light ProductionsAbout Light Productions, Inc.

Since 1987 our 501(c)3 non-profit charity has been promoting and producing media that enlivens, engages and enriches. We focus on (but are not limited to) women's and animal's issues.

The Women's Image Awards exist because to the extent that women's voices remain silent, we are all robbed of their contribution. But since many non-human animals have no voice, and are also enslaved and harmed by humans, we provide our voice and protection.
