Brussels 1 December 2009: The European Association of Communications Agencies has launched the call for entries for the EACA Care Awards 2010. These Awards for European Social Marketing Campaigns recognise excellence in promoting care for people, resources and the environment. They are part of the EACA’s overall commitment to promote Corporate Social Responsibility and are linked to the ACT Responsible online gallery and the ACT Responsible World Tour.

The  EACA Care Awards 2010 are now open for entries until the 2nd April 2010.

The awards will be judged by a panel of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) chaired by German MEP Thomas Mann, (European Peoples’ Party), together with other MEP’s, representatives of media agencies and stakeholders - so entering this award represents a unique opportunity to present CSR work to an important political audience.

Campaigns from all over Europe and for clients such as Amnesty International, UNICEF and the European Social Fund were some of the former winners.

This years’ judging, as well as the announcement of the winners and the presentation of the prizes, will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels, in order to give the winning campaigns the institutional visibility they deserve.

The campaigns will be judged on the 27th of April 2010 and the award ceremony will take place on the 23rd of June 2010 from 18:00h to 20:30h. Works will be featured at the Euro Effies® Awards Gala in September.

More information on how to submit a campaign can be found via: www.careawards.eu.
