The 2017 Torch Awards is open for entries. Each year, the Torch Awards partners with a nonprofit organization and presents a competition for young creatives that explores a creative challenge with real-world potential.
For the 2017 Torch Awards, New York Festivals has partnered with 'Today, I'm Brave,' a registered non-profit that celebrates people performing Brave acts every day and everywhere. Their purpose is to inspire bravery within individuals and organizations alike by supporting Brave initiatives and sharing Brave stories from around the world.
"We are thrilled to partner with Today I'm Brave and believe in their inspiring message," said Lisa Armstrong, director, New York Festivals Torch Awards. "This is a fantastic opportunity for both the Torch Awards and its entrants to join forces with this international nonprofit that champions bravery."
Young creatives entering the 'Integrated-Mixed Media Challenge' will develop and pitch an idea for an integrated-mixed media campaign to promote the international release of the Today, I'm Brave book in August 2017.
The 2017 Torch Awards submission deadline is February 17th. Finalist teams will be announced on April 3rd. The Grand-Winning Team will be announced and awarded live at the New York Show, taking place May 18th at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City.
