      Living Legend Recipient is Oscar-winning actress, Cloris Leachman who, now eighty two years young, was the oldest dancing demon to ever appear on Dancing With The Stars. In 1946, Cloris was crowned Miss Chicago and continued to work in film and theatre where she honed both her comic and dramatic abilities. In 1971, Ms. Leachman was rewarded an Oscar for The Last Picture Show. Cloris is also the only actress to have received an Emmy award in five different categories. Cloris has since created remarkable television, theatre and film roles, including starring in her own show Phyllis, a spin-off series from The Mary Tyler Moore show. Cloris also created five children, all actors: Adam Englund, Bryan Englund, George Englund Jr., Morgan Englund, and Dinah Englund.

      Mary Dolaher will be on hand to receive the inaugural Interactive Entertainer Honor for having provided immeasurable contributions to the video game industry, including running E3 Expo for over a decade, creating a new E for All Expo for consumers, and her role in the development of "Into the Pixel", an outstanding video game art exhibition. Next Generation magazine has several times named Mary Dolaher one of the top 25 people in the video game industry. Ms. Dolaher now serves as CEO of the IDG World Expo, a leading producer of trade events including Macworld and REVEAL Los Angeles. Ms. Dolaher joined IDG World Expo after having been Senior Vice President of the Entertainment Software Association, where she ran the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), known globally as the video game industry's leading annual event. Bob Carrigan, CEO IDG Communications Inc., will present the special tribute to Ms. Dolaher. IDG World Expo is a business unit of IDG, the world's leading technology media, research and event company.

      According to Phyllis Stuart, founder of Women's Image Network, (WIN), "Because we are on the cusp of a gaming industry revolution that will change how people interact with their televisions and connect with others, to explore this cultural convergence we have added a video game category to our awards program. Moreover, since Women’s Image Network produces The WIN Awards to Celebrate the Achievements of Film, Television, Music and Video Game Artists Promoting Gender Equality Through Creativity and Leadership we will also be honoring a top achieving interactive industry executive, Mary Dolaher whose work forwarded the video game industry which now boasts 18 billion dollars in annual sales".

      Established in 1993 the non-profit organization Women's Image Network, (WIN), first produced The WIN Awards to celebrate those who promote gender parity through their creativity and leadership. In 2002, WIN began inviting television broadcasters and film studios to submit their shows and films to honor seasoned professionals whose work forward its mission "To Foster A World Where Everyone WINs".

      Each year, WIN invites broadcasters and film studios to submit their shows and films to The WIN Awards so they may honor seasoned television, film and video game professionals whose work forwards its mission “To Foster A World Where Everyone WINs”.
