Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO is sponsoring and will be hosting this year’s Creative Conscience Awards as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting creativity in all its forms.
Creative Conscience was set up in 2011, it is a charitable institution (CIO) improving the communities we live and work in, helping to transform the wider world using creative thinking. It engages, rewards and supports the generation of creative thinkers to use their talents for positive social and environmental impact. It does this through an annual global scheme, talks, workshop and training supporting all categories of creative and design lead disciplines.
Its 2019 Awards, which will take place on 9 July, celebrates creative projects that have been built to make positive impact on social issues including mental health, the refugee crisis, equality, the environment, conscious consumption and human rights. The Ambassadors and judges include illustrator Sir Quentin Blake and environmentalist Sir Jonathon Porritt as well as AMV’s creative partners Nicholas Hulley and Nadja Lossgott. The pair were behind the culture changing #Bloodnormal for Bodyform/Libresse, a taboo busting campaign that set out to normalise periods. It made normality revolutionary by being the first campaign in ad history to show period blood. It won the Cannes Glass Grand Prix and Titanium Lion. CEO Sarah Douglas will be speaking at the event.
Nadja Lossgott, creative partner at AMV BBDO said: “The gauntlet has been thrown down to the industry to be part of the solution that drives sustainable change and creates socially responsible work. We welcome this and through Creative Conscience, which is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we want to identify and champion the best work from this new generation of creatives.”
