REVEALED: The 2022 Power of Purpose Awards shortlist

Campaign US 2022 Power of Purpose Awards logo

The honorees demonstrate exemplary work in purpose-driven marketing.

It's more important than ever that brands and advertisers demonstrate humanity and compassion in their communications while giving back to their communities.

That’s why Campaign US is excited to reveal the finalists for the 2022 Power of Purpose Awards, which honor purpose and cause-driven work in marketing, from corporations to nonprofit organizations fighting to better our society and our planet. 

This year’s awards spanned seven categories — sustainability, diversity and inclusion, nonprofit, brand purpose, healthcare and public service announcements. Nominees set the standard for cause-driven marketing and corporate responsibility across major brands and companies.

A big thank you to our judges for your time and dedication to this important program. 

And congratulations to all of our finalists! Check out the shortlist below.
