2020 World Changing Ideas
Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas awards honor products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for the good of society and the planet. The contest, now in its fourth year, has honored everything from large companies’ sustainability initiatives to clever consumer products to groundbreaking government policies. There are many problems in the world, and we are interested in innovative ideas that solve any of them.
This year, we have 25 categories (including several new ones). We’re looking for any and all groundbreaking projects that have launched since the start of 2019. Entries will be considered by a group of designers, venture capitalists, thinkers, social entrepreneurs, and Fast Company editors. You can see some of the 2020 judges below, and more will be added in the coming months. Entries will be judged on impact, design, scalability, and ingenuity.
Early Rate Deadline (fee $150): November 15
Regular Deadline: December 13,
Our goal with these awards is to bring attention to ideas with great potential, and help them expand their reach and serve as inspiration for others. Every entry will be read by Fast Company editors. Winners, finalists, and honorable mentions will appear in the May issue of Fast Company magazine and on our website. And this year we’ll also be selecting one overall World Changing Company from all our entrants.
