“As jury president of the Care Awards, every year I am always surprised to see so many new, creative and inspiring ways to express issues and promote important causes. A good campaign, like many of the submissions this year, is a campaign whose message sticks, where you find yourself thinking about the issue and wanting to do something to help. Politicians, companies, consumers and citizens- young and old- we all have a role to play. This is the message of the Care Awards,” Says Dita Charanzová, vice-president of the European Parliament

“The competition was tough this year and open passionate discussions between the jury members, each bringing their own expertise. Coming from a variety of backgrounds it was difficult to seduce them all. The 31 campaigns shortlisted were carefully examined, and only 8 made the cut, a majority of which are from the ‘noncommercial sector’. A difference quite interesting to highlight while most of the awards in the industry are seeing their ‘good’ or ‘sustainable’ categories overtaken by companies” explains Isa Kurata, Act Responsible cofounder.
