Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas awards honor products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for the good of society and the planet. The contest, now in its seventh year, has honored everything from large companies’ sustainability initiatives to clever consumer products to groundbreaking government policies. There are many problems in the world, and we are interested in innovative ideas that solve any of them.
This year, we have 44 categories, including several new ones. We’re looking for any and all groundbreaking projects that have launched since the start of 2022. Entries will be considered by a group of designers, venture capitalists, thinkers, social entrepreneurs, and Fast Company editors. You can see some of the past judges, below, and more will be added to the 2023 judges in the coming months. Entries will be judged on their impact, innovation, design, creativity, ingenuity, and scalability.
