“The EACA Care Awards showcase the wonderful work done by agencies in partnership with NGOs, charities, national & local governments and economic operators, often on a pro-bono basis, to support critical social and environmental issues”, said Dominic Lyle, EACA Director General. “The Awards fulfil three main tasks. They provide a means to say a public thank you to the many people who give freely of their time and skills to create the campaigns; they bring the often very important causes they address to the attention of a broad audience, including the EU institutions, national politicians and legislators, commercial communications agencies, international organizations concerned with social issues (WHO, UNEP, UNICEF), NGOs and national / regional government departments/bodies responsible for, or able to influence, social marketing programmes; and they demonstrate the power of creativity, which is at the heart of good advertising, to act as force for good.”

Campaigns submitted to the EACA Care Awards 2010 covered topical public issues such as public health, environment, public safety, homelessness, domestic violence, child abuse and discrimination.

Entries were judged in 6 categories: Non-profit Organisations and Non-governmental Bodies; Government Bodies and Related Organisations; Local and Regional Authorities; Public and Private Sector Businesses; Corporate Governance (CSR); Eco-friendly Internal Processes and scored according to three criteria, topicality of core message, quality and relevance of content and personal engagement.

The EACA Care Awards 2011 will open for entries in December 2010.
