The prestige of the UK's annual Green Awards appears to be growing year on year. As the awards get glitzier, with bigger name celebrities involved on the judging panel and as presenters, so the profile of the event rises. This year the rock n' roll queen of organic skin care Jo Wood and the vintage design king Wayne Hemingway will be presenting the Green Awards, celebrating the great and good of the sustainable communications industry, in the dramatic surroundings of The Natural History Museum. So do you have what it takes to win a Green Award?If your business or project is doing ground breaking work in the creative communications of corporate, social and environmental sustainable development then you are eligible to apply for a Green Award. You'd better be quick though as the deadline for entries is 30th September - yes, that's next Thursday!
This is the 5th year the Green Awards have taken place and for the first time it's going global, welcoming entries from all around the world. The awards are divided into 16 categories, with three new ones being added this year: Green Educational Project, Best Green Use of Mobile apps and Technologies, and Best Green Product Innovation.
Your work will be judged by great names in sustainability such as Galahad Clarke of Terra Plana, John Grant author of Co-opportunity, Jo Wood of Jo Wood Organics, Melissa Sterry of New Frontiers and Nicola Giuggioli of Eco-Age.
This what dishy actor and all round good green style advocate Colin Firth has to say about the Green Awards, "I would like to express my support to the Green Awards; it is very important, especially in this moment, that companies who put their efforts and financial resources in green initiatives are recognized with such a prestigious prize".
