The Dyslexia Awards are open for nominations from the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands!

In 2025 the Dyslexia Awards will be open for nominations from the whole of the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands!

The Dyslexia Awards is about celebrating, highlighting and offering a platform to positively promote, the so often overlooked positives of dyslexics and dyslexia!

Founded 2015, by Elizabeth Wilkinson MBE, who is dyslexic herself and for about a decade had thought about, dreamed about and talked about starting an awards to celebrate dyslexics and dyslexia; having campaigned, advocated, supported and worked with some many amazing dyslexics since 1999; starting her business ‘The Dyslexic Dyslexia Consultant’ in 2007, and the the original Dyslexia information Day (DiD) in 2018, she was determined to find ways to counter balance the so often negative publicity, confusion and sometimes shame, that is so often associated or experienced when receiving a dyslexia diagnosis; so in 2015 Elizabeth decided that the time was finally here 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 our amazing sponsors and supporters, amazing local businesses, individuals and organisations that the Dyslexia Awards is able to be and continues to be a not for profit event, that shines with spectacular positivity and a proactive ‘will do’ and ‘Can Do’ attitude, with the goal of inspiring everyone involved, from nominees to judges, sponsors to suppliers – thank you, thank you, thank you!
