The winners of the Corporate Partnerships Award were CARE International UK and their partners GSK, Barclays Group and Living Goods

Corporate Partnerships Award

The Corporate Partnerships Award recognises the importance of NGOs working effectively with corporate companies to deliver their mission, recognising that business expertise and assets can play a vital role in international development.  

As NGOs face ever-changing obstacles in delivering their work on the ground, new partnerships with private sector companies can support NGOs to widen their reach and impact.  

Are you in a corporate partnership?

We are looking for NGOs that have successfully worked in a corporate partnership on a project to deliver their aims and make real change. A successful corporate partnership provides solutions to a core issue and leads to real impact. The partnership needs to add value to the NGO's work, whether that's sharing expertise or resources. 

Judging criteria

Your video and accompanying entry form will be judged on the following criteria:

  • The narrative - how compellingly you tell the partnership's story
  • The currency - how you interpret and respond to current global challenges through your partnership
  • The reach - how the partnership expanded your reach 
  • The impact - the likelihood of impact and sustainability through your partnership’s work
  • The success - how successful was the partnership in adding value

All of the points above must be addressed in your video entry. We will not accept any marketing videos that do not address the above.
