The Earth Awards

The Earth Awards
Redesign Tomorrow Today
The Earth Awards is an aspirational platform for consumer-driven ideas that challenge designers and innovators to build a new economy. It is the only truly global awards dedicated to identifying viable designs which have the potential to improve our quality of life and build a new economy.
The Earth Awards successfully encourages designers, innovators and consumers from many different cultures to come together and find new ways to build a better tomorrow. This year more than 500 entries were received from people in 65 countries.
There are six categories:
The Built Environment
Social Justice

The Earth Awards Selection Committee is made up of world-leading entrepreneurs, designers and thinkers, making the awards the very best in class. They all share the Earth Awards’ belief in building a new economy founded in innovation and design. Their task is to identify those innovations with the greatest potential and then present them to world industry leaders who have the means to bring them to market.

Each category winner will receive $10,000 and the grand prize winner will receive at total of $50,000 and be unveiled at a Gala Dinner at Bridgewater House in London on September 16th, 2010.

‘Start’, a new initiative by HRH the Prince of Wales, has invited The Earth Awards to showcase an exclusive selection of our exceptional entries in the gardens of Marlborough House, Lancaster House and Clarence House from September 8th – 19th. They will be enjoyed by thousands of visitors alongside many entertaining and inspiring exhibits. The objective is simple: to invite the public to experience the greatest design ideas of tomorrow – today.
This unique outdoor experience will culminate in The Earth Awards Gala at Marlborough House, the seat of the Secretariat of the Commonwealth Nations. There, the grand prize winner will be unveiled in the presence of members of the prestigious Selection Committee, industry and world leaders.
Along with our media partner Financial Times, The Earth Awards will present the FT Summit Investing in Innovative Design and Technology prior to the Awards Gala on September 16th. The event will bring together high profile thought leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators who share the values at the heart of The Earth Awards – a desire to debate new initiatives and creative solutions which can meet the challenges of our time.
