COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (March 17, 2016) – Nominations are open until June 17th for the 2016 EthicMark® Awards for ads and media campaigns that “uplift the human spirit and society.” Winners will be announced during The SRI Conference on Sustainable, Responsible, Impact Investing, November 9–11, 2016, in Denver, CO (http://www.SRIconference.com/).
The nomination period is open to ads and media campaigns. Nominated ads and campaigns can be produced by businesses, nonprofit organizations, or individuals. Nominations should be submitted on the EthicMark® website: www.ethicmark.org.
The EthicMark® Awards seek to transform advertising by demonstrating the power of media campaigns to further both the public interest and legitimate private interests.
“After the success of our 10th annual awards, this new season should bring even more exciting new campaigns from all over the world,” said Hazel Henderson, president of Ethical Markets Media, founder of the EthicMark® Awards.
The annual EthicMark® Awards are co-sponsored by Ethical Markets Media, LLC, and the World Business Academy, in partnership with The SRI Conference and ESPM, one of Brazil’s premier institutions of higher education in communication, marketing, and business.
Steve Schueth, president of First Affirmative Financial Network and producer of The SRI Conference said: “The EthicMark® Awards recognize the tremendous power of the media to shape social attitudes and culture. Our theme for the 27th Annual SRI Conference is #AllinForImpact because we celebrate the idea that investment capital can help solve the pressing social, political, and environmental challenges of our times. We find common ground with the EthicMark® Awards for honoring some of these same endeavors in the realm of mass media.”
