It's never been more important for companies to stand for something more than their bottom line. From racial equality to the environment to social justice, many businesses are focused on having a positive impact on the world and we're recognizing those companies and their work.

The Greater Good Awards, presented by Digiday, Glossy, Modern Retail and WorkLife, will showcase the work being done around social causes, its impact and ultimately those working toward the greater good.

                              JUDGING CRITERIA

                              Judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate success over the past 12 months. Judges are seeking companies or campaigns that have seized challenges and created opportunities and will evaluate entries based on the following criteria: Innovation, Creativity, Consumer Value and Results. 

                              Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries. This can include details of financial performance, specific KPIs, creative evidence in the form of a sizzle reel, campaign images, or links to the final project or related sites. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry.

                              THE JUDGING PROCESS

                              Judges will score each entry prompt and consider any supporting materials submitted. These scores will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All scores will then be averaged and the highest scoring entries will appear on the shortlist. Note: At least three judges will score each entry.


                              All material will remain confidential to the judges. Only the 'Credits' section of an entry will be made public via the shortlist. If you win a particular category, our team may summarize the entry for posts on Digiday.com. Specific results are never shared. 






                              What parts of my entry are made public?

                              The only information that is ever publicized is the 'Credits' section of your entry, should you be named a finalist or winner. Winning entries are summarized, sans specific data, and published within our winners guide. 

                              Who's contact information should we include on the entry form?

                              We use the included contact information for all updates regarding your entry. You should also include a secondary contact & email address in case we aren't able to connect with you.

                              What if my company or a competitor has a judge on the jury panel?

                              We recuse judges from scoring any categories their company or a direct competitor submits to. 

                              When and how are finalists announced?

                              The shortlist will be announced on the Digiday website. All entrants will be notified, whether you are named a finalist or not, via the email address you included on your entry. 

                              When are the winners announced?

                              All winners are announced virtually. The exact date will be announced with the shortlist. 

                              Can I license the use of the Greater Good Awards logo if I win?

                              Yes. Our licensing program provides you with the opportunity to further the reach of your win through the use of our seal on your website, via social media, email signatures and more. For more information on the options available, please reach out to our team at awards@digiday.com.

                              Is this program open globally? 

                              Yes. The Greater Good Awards is a global program. 

                              What is the eligibility period? 

                              The eligibility period is August 2020 - August 2021, though we can be flexible with these dates.
