If you are looking for KDE, Gnome, MATE, Unity, etc they are in the Desktop Environment Award.

NOTE: Window Managers that are rarely used outside of their Desktop Environment counterparts are no longer included in this category, based on feedback. This includes: Compiz, KWin, Marco, Muffin, Mutter and xfwm4.
NOTE: Enlightenment was moved to the Desktop Environment category last year.

StumpWM - what else? :)

Tried jwm, fluxbox, blackbox dwm, ratpoison, but eventually went with openbox

Openbox which is highly configurable and flexible.

I just started using the xmonad tiling WM this (past) year, and I've liked it a lot so far. The config file/source code (written in Haskell) is a bit annoying to figure out, but everything's documented.

This year I went with Window Maker because the people behind it brought it back from the dead over the past couple of years and added some nice features. It is a rather unique environment.

Love Fluxbox - easy to configure, complete control over window behavior, easy to have it scan directory for wallpaper. Lean, mean, fast. My favorite tiling WM is DWM because I really admire the fact someone can put together a fully functional environment with less than 2000 lines of source code. Being able to configure it via code is pretty awesome as well.

WindowMaker was a nice surprise for me this past year, running Slackware with xfce on my old laptop than switched to windowmaker clean, simple,
