Established by Sky as part of its campaign to be net zero carbon by 2030, the Sky Zero Footprint Fund will support brands that are committed to driving positive behavioural change and tangible impact towards a more sustainable future.
Open to UK media agencies, creative agencies and brands, the £2 million Fund will support businesses to accelerate and amplify their initiatives to change the world for the better through the influence of TV and advertising.
A judging panel will evaluate entries based on their commitment to a carbon zero future – whether this means showcasing how their business operates in a sustainable way; how their products are built to help reduce their carbon footprint, or how they are inspiring and normalising positive behavioural change amongst their customers to protect the environment.
From the entries received, 10 brands will move forward to a live/virtual pitch with the judges. From this process, the five most creative and impactful ideas will go on to share the £2 million pot of media value. Each business is guaranteed at least £250,000 with the strongest execution securing £1 million for its campaign.
Applications will be invited from 6 April 2021 until 14 May 2021.
How To Apply
For stage 1, entrants are required to enter online.
Shortlisted entrants will pitch to judges in the summer. By autumn, the £1 million media value grand prize winner will be announced, and winners’ adverts will be revealed.
