The Finalists of the 3rd Annual Anthem Awards will be officially announced on December 5th! This marks the start of the Anthem Community Voice—a chance for supporters to celebrate the projects that mean the most to them. From the 5th to Thursday, December 21st, Anthem Finalists will have the opportunity to promote their projects to the public to garner support. The for-profit and nonprofit projects with the greatest amount of support in each category will win an Anthem Community Voice Award. 


If you’re an Anthem Finalist, this is your time to shine, and celebrate your work with your communities. Here’s a quick guide on what it means to be a Finalist and how the celebration window will work. 




What does it mean to be an Anthem Awards Finalist?

From the thousands of entries submitted during the call for entries, our esteemed judges in the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) review each entry to select the very best. If your project has been selected as a Finalist, it means you’re eligible to win either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Anthem Award in this year’s competition. This also means you’re in the running to win an Anthem Community Voice Award. 


What is an Anthem Community Voice Award?

As the members of IADAS select the Gold, Bronze, and Silver Anthem Winners, the Internet public uses their voices to support and select the Anthem Community Voice Winners. The for-profit and nonprofit Finalists with the greatest amount of support in each of our 7 cause areas (Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Education Art & Culture, Health, Human & Civil Rights, Humanitarian Action & Services, and Responsible Technology) will win. 


How do I become eligible for Anthem Community Voice?

Great question. Once you or your organization has been named a Finalist, you are automatically eligible to earn a Gold, Silver, or Bronzen Anthem Award in your category, as well as an Anthem Community Voice Award. 


How do I participate in Anthem Community Voice?

All humans can participate and celebrate our finalists’ work from December 5th to the 21st. 


How Are Winners Selected?

Gold Silver and Bronze: 

Our IADAS Jurors provide scores for entries based on the appropriate criteria for each category and eventually cast ballots to determine the Bronze, Silver, and Gold winners. Categories may have multiple Gold, Silver, or Bronze winners, depending on relative scoring. Jurors may not vote in any category in which they have a conflict of interest. 


Anthem Community Voice: 

There will be one nonprofit and one for-profit winner for each category. Projects that receive the greatest amount of support during the celebration period will win. The celebration will run from December 5th to the 21st. 


When will Winners be Announced?

Winners of the 3rd Annual Anthem Awards will be announced on Tuesday, January 30th, 2024. 

Patagonia – Don’t Buy This Jacket

Patagonia has put social impact at the core of their brand mission and values from the start, and their iconic Don’t Buy This Jacket campaign demonstrates how brands can use their platform to make an impact — or better yet, to help reduce our impact. This 2011 ad ran in the New York Times on Black Friday, making a lasting impression for its bold message addressing the issue of consumerism head on and asking readers to take the Common Threads Initiative pledge to reduce, repair, reuse, recycle, and reimagine a world where we take only what nature can replace.
