Platinum partners of the Creative Heroes Award Czech Republic are ŠKODA AUTOImpact Hub, and ING Czech Republic. Gold Partners are NN, Albert and Future Port Prague.

The Creative Heroes Award focuses on the impact of creative thinking. It focuses on the person that leads the change, on the person that has the courage to stand up and challenge the current

status quo. It zooms in on the creative process itself and on the people behind new concepts and innovations that have sustainable positive impact on people, society, and the environment.

Peter Olah, Chair of the jury and Head of Interior Design (EDI) – Architecture, UX/UI, Colour & Trim at ŠKODA AUTO says: “We were spoiled with no less than 80 nominees for the Creative Heroes Award Czech Republic 2021 across five award categories. The challenge was to evaluate the impact of each project, especially since the nominees came from such a broad spectrum of society. We had many good discussions that led to what we think is a balanced and fair judgment of all nominees.”

Gesina Roters, Co-Chair and Partner & Creative Director at DAY Creative added: “We have judged the impact of people and their creative thinking in areas such as health care, science, business and engineering. It is not always simple and straightforward to compare them, especially when the reach of the impact – on an individual, local, regional, national, or international level - is also part of the equation. All nominees are winners that lead the way into our sustainable future in one way or another.
