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 and Modern Retail, will showcase the work being done around social causes, its impact and ultimately those working toward the greater good. 

For years, Digiday Media has recognized social good campaigns through our awards programs. We see this as a way to recognize more of that work at a time when it's more critical than ever.

                              JUDGING CRITERIA

                              The judges will be looking for entries that can clearly demonstrate impact and innovation. Our judges are seeking companies, campaigns, partnerships that have benefitted the intended cause through raised funds, awareness, etc.

                              Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries and this could include details of financial performance, results in terms of KPI, creative evidence in terms of a sizzle reel, still images, or links to the final project. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry. 

                              Interested in being a judge? Submit your nomination here.

                              THE JUDGING PROCESS

                              Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. Judges will be asked to give a score for each question within the entry form relating to three criteria: impact, scope of work and innovation. These will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists.


                              All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Only the "Credits" section of an entry is subject to be made public.






                              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.
