There are 10 finalists in the national campaign "Enlightener of the Year 2020", organized by the Bulgarian National Radio. For 7 years now, voting has determined the people who today inspire others, make changes and do good deeds. There were 117 nominations in this year's campaign, with inspiring stories and characters. Traditionally, politicians, protesters and journalists, whose job by default should be to enlighten are not nominated. The jury selected the 10 finalists. The public voting for the winner among them will start in October, and the "Enlightener of the Year 2020" will as always be announced on November 1.
