Kolster says that, while he’s proud of this year’s winners and their
exceptional work, he still sees critical gaps in purpose-driven messaging

"I miss seeing more work tackling the climate emergency — maybe it’s about
time award shows create a climate impact award? Or what about coming up with

be a matter of life and death. It would be wonderful to see more cases of
creativity being used for good and to tackle pressing global issues.”
