Announcing the 28 Winners of the 2023 crQlr Awards
Loftwork Inc. and creative community hub FabCafe Global have announced the 28 winning projects of the 2023 crQlr Awards (“Circular” Awards), a global annual award that gathers projects and ideas that seek to design a circular economy.
The crQlr Awards values are based on three guiding principles: “Circular, not linear,” “Action, not prestige” and “Gain from global perspectives.” With these values at the forefront, the awards aim to gather a wide range of circular projects, including up-and-coming ideas, activities, and artworks to large-scale initiatives working towards realizing a circular economy.
Submissions were evaluated based on the three PPP (for people, for planet, for profit) criteria. The first criterion is, for people; is the work creative, and does it show an insightful understanding of the circular economy or novel collaborative relationships? The second is for planet; does it have an overall positive and measurable impact on the environment? The third is for profit; does the work provide solutions to the challenges faced by society and businesses for activating a circular economy? Submissions were carefully assessed based on these criteria alongside the individual perspectives of the judges, resulting in a comprehensive evaluation. The selected projects will be celebrated as initiatives that can inspire people on a global scale and will be supported to continue their activities and work towards realizing a circular economy.
Expanding globally with each edition, the crQlr Awards’ third edition in 2023 attracted 140 submissions from a record-breaking 43 countries.
