The Anthem Awards were launched in 2021 to highlight social impact work across the globe. They were founded by The Webby Awards in partnership with the Ad Council, Born This Way Foundation, Feeding America, GLAAD, Mozilla, NAACP, NRDC, WWF, and XQ.

“The Anthem Awards were born out of the desire to amplify and celebrate the voices that are creating sustainable change and to inspire others to take action,” Patricia McLoughlin, Anthem Awards’ general manager, said in a statement. “In a year where so much is at stake, it is incredibly important to recognize impact work and celebrate the progress happening globally.”

WORD Creative and Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty are nominated in the diversity, equity and inclusion category, where other winners include The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.

MTV Entertainment Studios & Paramount Media Networks: Behind the Scenes of RuPaul’s Drag Race LGBTQ Herstory Month is among the honorees in the health category.

The Anthem Awards are also honoring seven individuals with special achievement awards – actors Matt Damon, Kevin Bacon, Selma Blair and Jesse Tyler Ferguson; ballet star Misty Copeland; business leaders Jesper Brodin (IKEA and Ingka) and creative director/fashion designer Aurora James; and community activist Leon Ford.

This year’s Anthem winners were selected from a pool of more than 2,000 submissions from 44 countries by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. Anthem judges are leaders with expertise that spans the Anthem cause areas including diversity, equity, & inclusion; education, art, & culture; health; human & civil rights; humanitarian action & services; responsible technology; and sustainability, environment, & climate.

A portion of program revenue is directed to The Anthem Fund, a grant program supporting emerging organizations working to advance the causes recognized by the Anthem Awards.
