The organization Who is Who was founded in Greece in 2007 by Dimitris Goris and its
main object was to create an annual collectible encyclopedia of luxury edition in gold
print with biographies of prominent Greeks.
Every year since then, important biographies of Greek personalities have been published
from various fields. Already in ancient Greece, Alexandria in Egypt and in the countries
of Mesopotamia, biographies of important people of that time still known today were
recorded. Following a similar example we wanted to capture the personalities of our era
that could work as a role model in the modern world. As a result we had a magnificent
collection of biographies of significant men and women applauded by international
In 2019, we took the idea a bit further. We decided to find personalities from around the
world whose humble character, yet great work needed to immerse and be recognized.
Thus, the Who is Who International Awards were born.
