The Best Use of Brand Purpose, one of The Warc Awards' three categories, looks for evidence that brands are integrating purpose into their marketing and their wider enterprise to produce a tangible return, rather than investing in bolt-on CSR programmes.
There is a $7,000 prize for the Grand Prix winner, as well as $1,000 prize for each of the three special awards in this category: the Longevity Award, for the best purpose-led strategy with a long-term sustainability commitment of three years or more; the Analytics Award, for use of data to demonstrate effectiveness of a brand purpose-led strategy; and the Partnership Award, for the best purpose-led strategy that relies on a collaboration.
The Warc Awards are free to enter and are open to submissions from any country and communications discipline. The closing date for entries is 20 April 2017. More information and details about how to enter can be found at www.warc.com/warcawards/purpose.info#entry-details
