THE ANTHEM AWARDS
Celebrating purpose & mission-driven work from people, companies and organizations worldwide.
Over the past 20 years, we’ve witnessed a massive cultural shift where humans worldwide have led and organized in new ways to build a more purpose-driven society. More than ever, people live their values and make active choices around the local and global impact of their daily actions—including the food they eat, the media they consume, the clothing they wear, the causes they support, and how they choose to spend their money.
This cultural shift coupled with the social and technological revolution has brought this new global consciousness to the professional world at scale. Consumers are demanding more of brands and organizations—and they’re answering the call. From groups standing up for human rights to brands creating inclusive workplaces, organizations across industries are actively reimagining a better world for all.
In parallel to this growing trend, we at The Webby Awards have seen a rise in submissions of purpose & mission-driven work. In working with the social impact community, we’ve highlighted the need for a comprehensive platform to share these best-in-class examples. The Anthem Awards was developed to recognize the breadth of this work both online and off and around the globe by honoring the organizations, brands, and people creating long-lasting impact.
The Anthem Awards is the largest and most comprehensive social impact award, accepting work across five areas of impact work including: Awareness & Media, Fundraising, Community Engagement, Product, Innovation & Service and Team & Leadership for seven causes: Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Education Art & Culture, Health, Human & Civil Rights, Humanitarian Action & Services, Responsible Technology, and Sustainability Climate & Environment. By amplifying the voices that spark global change, we’re defining a new benchmark for impactful work that inspires others to take action in their own communities.
Additionally, The Anthem Fund was created to support emerging individuals and organizations actively working to advance the causes that are being recognized in the Anthem Awards. This year we are proud to be partnering with Billion Oyster Project.
With over 2,000 submissions from 44 countries around the world, 10,000+ reviews from our jurors, and over 25,000 supporters in the Anthem Community Voice, the 3rd Annual Anthem Award Winners were announced on January 30, 2024.
