Each 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.
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.
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 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 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.
Learn more about our animal advocacy projects at: Elephant DaZe.
The WIN Awards are not open to the general public and is an invitation-only event. To secure attendance information please email WIN at (Info@TheWINAwards) or telephone 310.229.5365.
