About the awards.


Recent years have seen cause marketing move from a niche pursuit to a truly popular approach among major corporations and brands, reaching near ubiquity in some industries. Old style CSR has largely been replaced by a desire to add a bigger purpose at the heart of organisations.

At the same time, charities, NGOs and public sector bodies have continued to innovate and produce powerful, effective campaigns for their own causes.

Against this backdrop, leading Haymarket titles PRWeek, Campaign and Third Sector launched The Campaigns for Good Awards, recognising campaigns that use creative ideas successfully to further positive causes, and also acknowledge the organisations behind them.

Now in its second year, the Awards are open to agencies, brands, public sector bodies, charities and NGOs.

With the rise of cause marketing and social purpose showing no signs of slowing, winning a Campaigns for Good Award is a perfect way to demonstrate your organisation's abilities to excel in this crucial area.
