In 2018, The Care Awards didn’t take place due to a lack of financing.
In 2019 we are determined to change that!
This year the Care Awards Ceremony will take place on October 25th in Brussels.
NB : all participating entries submitted in 2018 will be judged alongside the 2019 ones.
Thanks for your understanding and support.
The European Association of Communications Agencies and ACT Responsible conceived this creative award in 2009 in a bid to highlight the advertising industry’s specific contribution to society by awarding the most successful creative social & environmental campaigns. The Care Awards focuses on specific subjects such as public health, environment, sustainable consumption, public safety, disability, human rights, domestic violence, child abuse, homelessness, education and other similar topical public issues. The specificity of the Care Awards is its jury chaired by a member of the European Parlement and composed of NGO & Institutions Communications directors, Creative Directors, and CSR Expert. In 2019, we will open it to CSR & Marketing directors.
« The campaigns which agencies develop for social, humanitarian and environmental causes are some of the most creative work in the world. This creative Award aims to recognise excellence in social marketing as part of EACA‘s overall commitment to promote Corporate Social Responsibility and ACT Responsible‘s mission to inspire, promote and federate the actors of the advertising communications industry around social responsibility and sustainable development. »

« I look forward to seeing the new creative entries this year and to welcoming you to the 2017 Care Awards. Participating as a Jury Chair for the first time in the Care Awards last year left a strong mark on me. I was impressed at how such difficult stories, ranging from a large variety of topics, and their messages were expressed so effectively and effortlessly in just a matter of minutes. Marketing is a business tool that can have a strong impact, and not only in a business environment. The Care Awards recognize excellence in this form of communication to change people’s behaviur for the benefit of the consumer and society as a whole. Instead of drawing attention to a product, these campaigns highlight everyday problems that are too often ignored in a way that inspires action. »
Ms Dita Charanzová, Czech Member, European Parliament.
The Jury members will be contacted shortly and will be composed of
CSR Directors and experts, NGO & Institutions Communications Directors, Creative Directors, and marketing directors.
