Don’t miss your chance to apply for the third annual World Changing Ideas awards, which honors products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for good.
Entries will be judged on impact, design, scalability, and ingenuity. You can see the full list of categories and get updates on the judges at the entry page.
In the past, we’ve honored electric trucks, a new kind of pregnancy test, jewelry made from melted-down guns, and an ambitious plan from the city of Los Angeles to increase its housing stock. You can read about last year’s winners here. We’re looking at everything from small concepts to Fortune 500 companies.
Still not convinced? Here’s five reasons why you should apply:
The winners and finalists will be featured in the May 2019 issue of Fast Company (a monthly readership of 700,000) and online on Fastcompany.com (more than 12 million monthly unique visitors and more than 40 million page views).
Every entry is reviewed by Fast Company editors. Finalists will be evaluated by our jury, an impressive list of designers, venture capitalists, thinkers, and social entrepreneurs.
We are accepting entries in 16 categories. Each category will be judged separately by an elite group of judges giving you multiple chances to win. If you submit to two or more categories, you will also be eligible for the Company of the Year award.
Just answer a few questions, select your categories, and you’re done!
You’ll receive a one year subscription to Fast Company included with your entry.
Our hope is that the awards illustrate the breadth of social innovation happening around the world–whether it’s at a major corporation or a small nonprofit–and that our finalists receive more exposure and a chance to scale even further. We’ll be accepting entries until December 7, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. PT. Enter today.
