Check out our case study from 2018 winner, Fashioned From Nature at the V&A, and 2019 winner Ice Watch from Studio Olafur Eliasson for inspiration.

Best Campaign Award

This award recognises the Best Campaign that successfully inspired and galvanised people to take creative climate action. 

Examples of campaigns may include (but are not limited to): a social media or communications campaign, protest, a petition.
