The Anthem Awards celebrate excellence in digital storytelling created with the intention of having positive social impact. Winners were selected from a pool of over 2,000 submissions from 44 countries by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS). Anthem judges are intellectually diverse leaders from across the impact industry with expertise that spans across the Anthem cause areas.
“Formative” is a podcast series conceived in collaboration with New York Edge, the leading nonprofit provider of free after-school programs in New York City public schools. The show aims to underscore New York Edge’s dedication to mentorship by featuring engaging conversations in which notable adults—ranging from artists and scientists to athletes and politicians—are interviewed by middle school students, aged eleven to fourteen.
“Fish of the Week!” is a dynamic podcast series developed to promote sport fishing and enhance public awareness of aquatic species. The weekly show features two passionate biologist/anglers and a wide range of expert guests having lively conversations about fish species from around the country.
“Undiscarded” tells in-depth stories about objects from the unique collection of the City Reliquary Museum in Brooklyn, New York, and along the way tells a ground-level history of New York City, from the perspective of groups and individuals who are often ignored and overlooked, but whose contributions to the city are deep and lasting.
All three shows are currently available on all major podcast platforms.
