The Earth Awards recognize design innovations that will change the way people live and pave the way to the imminent sustainable revolution. From pioneers of the sustainable movement to green entrepreneurs and adventurers, The Earth Awards has gathered momentum with support of influencers such as Richard Branson, Graydon Carter, David DeRothschild, Dr. Jane Goodall, Graham Hill, Philippe Starck and Diane von Furstenberg. The organization is currently accepting submissions in six categories: Built Environment, Fashion, Products, Systems, Future and Social Justice. All ideas will be considered but must distinguish themselves in six criteria: Achievable, Scalable, Measurable, Useful, Original and Ecological. The grand prizewinner will receive $50,000 while category winners receive $10,000 each. In 2010 The Earth Awards' Ceremony moves from New York City to London, where the Selection Committee will judge a shortlist of six finalists culminating with an exhibition in sustainable design. The exhibition will showcase the 2010 winning submissions, as well as past years winners. Along with the exhibition, the Financial Times will hold a Sustainable Business Conference and gala dinner inviting CEOs, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to match innovation with investment, fulfilling The Earth Awards' commitment to shepherd winning innovations closer to market. All finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their project to world business leaders, who will help them to transform their designs into market-ready solutions.
