As responsible influencers in our industry, it is our duty to help inspire love for humanity with our ideas. That’s why I’m happy that Tambuli Awards push this with their purpose of celebrating goodness in our brands. Our everyday communications should create powerful, meaningful stories that inspire diversity, equality and peace. After all, we’re not here just to solve brand problems. We’re here to change the world.”

Recognizing work that not only does good but it's also good for business. And in today's ever changing world, it’s a good thing to do."
The pioneer in award shows globally to celebrate effective advertising for good, the APAC Tambuli Awards honors brands that do good and do well – showing the seamless integration of creativity + human good + results. Case study entries must demonstrate how brands uplift society, create positive change, and correlate purpose with purchase.
The APAC Tambuli Awards is not an award on charity, advocacy, pro bono, or CSR advertising, even if those campaigns are welcome and encouraged to enter. The award, however, focuses on mainstream brand campaigns that celebrate humanity, inspire purpose, and deliver results.
Deadline for entries is on March 30. Visit www.tambuliawards.asia for details and entry kit. For inquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
