Advertising for Good: Nominations open for Ethicmark Awards 2017

Ethic logo 2Nominations for the 2017 EthicMark® Awards are open until June 23, 2017, for ads and media campaigns that “uplift the human spirit and society.” The winners will be announced at the 28th annual SRI Conference on Sustainable, Responsible, Impact Investing, November 1–3, 2017, in San Diego, CA.

The nomination period is open to ads and media campaigns. These can be produced by businesses, nonprofit organizations or individuals. Nominations can be submitted on the EthicMark® website at: www.ethicmark.org.

The EthicMark® Awards seek to transform advertising by demonstrating the power of media campaigns to further both the public interest and legitimate private interests.

“We expect our 2017 Annual awards to highlight the power of advertising and global media to enlighten the public and inspire companies to new levels of creative responsible marketing worldwide,” said Hazel Henderson, president of Ethical Markets Media, founder and co-chair of the EthicMark® Awards. The 2016 winners were the Do Right Initiative, from Tata Capital in India, and “Give Mom Back Her Name”, a UN Women campaign from Egypt.

The EthicMark® Awards recognize advertising that helps solve the pressing social, political, and environmental challenges of our time. The theme for the 28th annual SRI Conference is #AllinForImpact, celebrating the idea that investment capital can catalyze the shift to a more socially equitable and environmentally sustainable economy.

The annual EthicMark® Awards are co-sponsored by Ethical Markets Media, LLC, and the World Business Academy, whose president Rinaldo S. Brutoco, as co-chair said, “Ethical advertising is a critical characteristic of a healthy, long-term sustainable corporation that honors what it sells and the deeper values of its customers.”

The Awards are in partnership with The SRI Conference and ESPM, one of Brazil’s premier institutions of higher education in communication, marketing, and business.
