Our previous winners archive can be found here: https://www.creative-conscience.org.uk/winners/

The award is being built in honour of our friend + mentor Franklin Madison (1959-2020) who needlessly died not from Covid-19 but from fear of getting treatment as an Africa American. Franklin was a bronx born visionary who was dedicated to helping build a better world through the power of creative thinking. 

The Campaign

“In order to change society for the better - we first need to acknowledge and reward great behaviour” – Jay Shetty

We are establishing a physical symbol; a real award as a part of our international annual awards scheme – to celebrate great work that positively changes our societies. An award, created by established designers, locally made by craftspeople & artisans built from 100% recycled aluminium.

Where are we at in our project roadmap? 

After years of crafting, developing and refining, we are at the final stages of producing the physical awards. We currently now have samples,100% recycled cast aluminium of the sculpture and are finalising the finishing details with local makers, the very same people who make the Rolls Royce 'Flying Lady'. 

How will we use this money?

100% of the money raised will go towards the realisation of the awards + consequently supporting our work in social/environmental impact. This will cover the costs of our initial investment, testing and development, the final awards production and support the dedicated, passionate and diverse people that have helped us throughout the journey.
