NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Genius 100 Foundation (G100) in partnership with New York Festivals International Advertising Awards® are honored to announce IKEA’s “For A Safe Home” as the winner of the inaugural Genius 100 Inspiration Award.
Genius 100 Foundation and New York Festivals International Advertising Awards partnered to launch this new award to honor outstanding purpose-driven creative work that inspires action to create impact.
“We are so grateful to IKEA, and the team at Triad Advertising, for creating and submitting this extremely arresting, powerful and gripping work,” states Hilarie Viener, CEO, Genius 100 Foundation. “It focuses on domestic violence which has increased exponentially during the COVID Pandemic, so much so that UN Women developed “The Shadow Pandemic” public awareness campaign. Considering that statistically 1 in 3 women globally experienced some form of domestic violence, pre-pandemic, it is imperative that messages like this are spotlighted to inspire action and create impact.”
The ”For A Safe Home” work was presented by Triad Advertising, Czech Republic for IKEA.
"The inaugural year of the G100 Inspiration award brought in wonderfully impactful work from all over the globe. We look forward to continuing the partnership with Genius, putting a spotlight on inspiration and helping to raise money for incredible groups effecting real change in the world," states Scott Rose, Executive Director, New York Festivals International Advertising Awards.
