The online polls have closed and after an all-time high of 90,357 votes were cast, the finalists in the fifth annual Corporate Citizenship Film Festival have been chosen from a record 74 entries. In alphabetical order, here are the 10 finalists who will vie for the Center’s 2013 Film Festival Award:
- Aetna Inc.
- The Dow Chemical Company
- Hilton Worldwide
- Humana Inc.
- Mary Kay Inc.
- Sabre Holdings
This year’s competition, sponsored by Pitney Bowes, attracted global interest, with submissions from as far as Saudi Arabia. Entries covered a wide range of subjects from companies who have used video as an effective vehicle to tell their corporate citizenship stories to internal and external audiences. Videos depicted the corporate citizenship efforts of companies to address issues such as healthcare access, environmental impacts of products and services, unemployment and chronic disease.
If you did not get an opportunity to watch the videos, all 74 entries can still be viewed on the 2013 Film Festival page of the Center website. The 10 video finalists will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will choose the winner, which will be announced April 22 during the 2013 International Corporate Citizenship Conference in Boston. All 10 finalist videos will be available for viewing by the more than 600 professionals attending the conference, April 21-23.
