excellence in
promoting care
for people and
the environment.

Encouraging creativity.

The Care Awards were created in 2008 in partnership with the European Parliament to highlight the advertising industry’s contribution to society, celebrating the most successful creative social and environmental campaigns. The awards cover subjects such as public health, the environment, sustainable consumption, public safety, disability, human rights, domestic violence, child abuse, homelessness, education and other similar topical public issues. The Care Awards’ jury is chaired by a member of the European Parliament and composed of NGO & institutions communications directors, creative directors, and CSR experts. The jury will judge a shortlist of campaigns drawn from agencies’ submissions and will decide on the winning entries in a range of categories.

In partnership with

Dita Charanzovà

Vice President of the European Parliament Godmother & Jury President

“I look forward to seeing the new creative entries this year again. Participating as a Jury Chair to Care Awards left a strong mark on me. I am 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. Communication is a tool that can have a strong impact, and not only in a business environment. The Care Awards recognise excellence in this form of communication to change people’s behaviour 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.”

One Award, two Special Juries & a Youth Recognition.


This jury is open to creative talent from all around the world willing to participate. The members judge online all entries and select the campaigns to be part of the shortlist. 


Jury of Experts

The members are selected for their expertise in the communication field as agencies, advertisers, institutions, and NGOs. Under the lead of Ms Charanzová, they elect the winners.


New in 2022, a special youth price elected by students from IHECS (Institut des Hautes Etudes des Communications Sociales, Brussels) led by Sophie Pochet, Chief Academic Officer. They shine new light on the discussion.

The Shortlist.

The shortlist is the first-round of judging. The campaigns submitted are judged by approximatively 30 creative professionals around the world. They offer their time and expertise to select the campaigns that will be part of the shortlist.     

Discover the shortlist on September, 21st.
