2012 Positive Body Image Awards
AANA is a proud supporter of the first Australian Positive Body Image Awards in 2012. The Awards recognise Australia’s fashion, media/entertainment and advertising industries for initiatives that promote positive body image.
As a member of the Assessment and Advisory Panel, AANA’s CEO Scott McClellan will be involved in assessing the nominations and recommending finalists and award recipients.
The Awards will focus on initiatives targeted at children and young people aged 12-25 and will include two main categories:
- organisations demonstrating a real and ongoing commitment to body image friendly practices within their business; and
- specific body image friendly initiatives or products.
Young people will also be invited to nominate those people or organisations they believe are doing great work in promoting positive body image through digital/social media.
Recipients will be able to use the Body Image Award Winner symbol, which will help consumers recognise and support those who embrace positive body image.
Nominations will close 10 April 2012. Finalists will be announced in May 2012.
