Past Winners

See the Past Winners of the Eclipse Community Awards.

Eclipse is a large, vibrant community of many well-deserving individuals. Therefore, to ensure diversity of award winners, we have decided that nominees are not eligible in any category they have already won in the previous 3 years. Nominees can also only win one category per year. There are certainly many deserving of multiple awards, however we would like to acknowledge others also worthy of recognition.
