They are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), a diverse group of social impact leaders and experts who are all working to rebuild our world, and this year there were nearly 2,000 submissions from 44 countries around the world.

New this year, fans can support and celebrate this year’s Finalists through Anthem Community Voice from now until December 21, 2023. The for-profit and nonprofit entries in each category with the greatest amount of support will win the first-ever Anthem Community Voice Awards.
