Purpose Awards EMEA 2021: shortlist revealed

The awards recognise campaigns that use creative ideas successfully to further positive causes and acknowledge the organisations behind them. They are open to agencies, brands, public sector bodies, charities and NGOs throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The awards will take place over two days: Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 June. Click here to register to watch.

The chair of judges this year is Tanya Joseph, who helped create one of the best-known purpose campaigns of the modern era through Sport England's This Girl Can, which in its first year inspired 2.8m women to get active. Joseph joined Hill+Knowlton Strategies last year as managing director of specialist services in London.

Thanks to all the judges and to everyone who entered.

Campaign, PRWeek and Third Sector are delighted to have Facebook on board as an exclusive partner for this year's Purpose Awards. To find out more information, visit the awards' dedicated website or email events manager Georgia Baily at georgia.baily@haymarket.com.
