The first Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal Awards is happening Jan. 26

The event will celebrate local leaders "who often work quietly promoting their social missions/work without any public recognition," cofounder Nick Torres said.

Philadelphia Social Innovations Journal is hosting its first-ever awards event next month to recognize local social impact leaders in the nonprofit, for-profit and government sectors.

Cofounder Nick Torres said the event is an “evolution” in the 7-year-old online publication’s offerings, which include its launch of the Social Innovations Institute and Lab, an incubator for social enterprises, in 2013.

The awards, to be held on Thursday, Jan. 26, will help “recognize the region’s Social Innovators who often work quietly promoting their social missions/work without any public recognition,” Torres wrote in an email.

Get tickets

The voting process is a little tricky: The public can vote in only five categories per week, and then can’t vote in categories that were featured in weeks past. (In other words, you missed the boat on healthcare, education, community development and a handful of others.)

Check out all the categories here. You’re likely to recognize some nominees, such as Alex EpsteinGabriel Mandujano and Nora Lichtash.

Voting for the next five categories — board/trustee, social mobility, technology/journalism, empathy, and arts and culture — will be open from Jan. 3 through Jan. 9. The nominees were suggested and voted on by SIJ readers, Torres said.
