Eurobest announces its first 2022 shortlist

The 2022 Innovation Eurobest Award shortlist is revealed, including work from Germany, Finland and the USA

8 November 2022

Eurobest has announced today its first shortlist for 2022, the Innovation Eurobest Award. From 14 entries, 6 have been shortlisted; German entrants have received the most shortlists, followed by Finland and the USA.

Innovation Jury President, Andreia Vaz, Head of Innovation & Digital Transformation, Nestlé Iberia, Spain & Portugal comments, "The Innovation Jury looked for work that shifted our perspective, creative work that at the light of the different sub-categories' lenses, brought flair with ingenious solutions, be it at the level of the innovative idea itself or at how innovative the craft of the execution was. Ultimately, we looked for work that is impactful at a larger scale for our society, by taking into account the cultural nuances we have in Europe, hence why it’s great to have such a diverse Jury on board. The prevalent themes for this year relate to social issues we've been living with for years, such as gender inequality, racial inequality, gender diversity, planet sustainability and human foundational values such as health, accessibility or education, and we've seen great work shedding a fresh light into some of these issues. As we continue our judging, we'll keep in mind to award medals to the work that can be a role model on how creative work can have an impact in this context."
