The Dyslexia Awards are opening for nominations from the whole of the United Kingdom June 2022!

The sixth annual Dyslexia Awards open for nominations on 1st June 2022, and, due to popular demand this will be the first year that we will be accepting nominations from across the whole of the United Kingdom – not just Shropshire and the West Midlands!

Dyslexia Awards celebrates, highlights and promotes the so often overlooked positives of dyslexics and dyslexia!

Dyslexia Awards was founded by Elizabeth Wilkinson in 2015, Elizabeth is dyslexic herself, and dreamed of starting a dyslexia awards for over a decade; working tirelessly since 1999 promoting and championing her fellow dyslexics; in 2007 she started a business called ‘The Dyslexic Dyslexia Consultant’  and in 2008 she started the original Dyslexia information Day (DiD). Always determined to counter balance negative publicity and shame, that is so often associated when receiving a dyslexia diagnosis, Elizabeth decided in 2015 that it was time to start the Dyslexia Awards! She tirelessly continues to raise public awareness of dyslexia and to is always encouraging others to celebrate, own, be proud of and promote their own strengths, attributes and skills!

All to often dyslexics’ skills and strengths are overlooked in mainstream education and the work place; the Dyslexia Awards are an ideal opportunity to promote and celebrate, shine a light and create a spring-board to help promote the positive attributes, aspects, skills and talents of positive and amazing dyslexics! The Dyslexia Awards are a positive, fun and enjoyable way to effect positive and permanent change!

Elizabeth says “… the dyslexia awards have created a positive ripple effect across the UK that I was not expecting; I am delighted that people have got behind the awards and support what we are doing to do our bit in changing public perception of dyslexia and dyslexics – thank you! Our amazing nominees, finalists and winners are proof that dyslexics can and do achieve, we get to hear about so many amazing, talented, super innovative, entrepreneurs and individuals – the world just need to understand dyslexia can be a super power and that with our collective strengths and skills there are no limits!”

It is only with the continued support of amazing businesses, individuals and organisations, the Dyslexia Awards continues to be a not for profit event, that shines with spectacular positivity and a proactive ‘will do’ attitude, with the goal of inspiring everyone involved, from nominees to judges, sponsors to suppliers – thank you, thank you, thank you!
