The CA jurors work in multiple screening teams. Each category is divided between the screening teams so each group screens a portion of the entries. Each juror views the entries independently. Any juror can put an entry into the final voting by selecting it.

For finals, all jurors work as a single team. After the judges make their selections, their votes are tallied. A simple majority is usually required for a finalist to be selected a winner.

Publicis Groupe’s Égalité Raises $19K for 2013 AIDS Walk New York

NEW YORK CITY, NY (May 19, 2013) – In 1986 the GMHC, a charity devoted to AIDS research and prevention, launched their first annual fundraising event: A 10K walk through New York City. Today, the event attracts thousands of patrons who walk through much of Central Park. What was once a small event to generate awareness of the AIDS epidemic has evolved into a massive culmination of survivors, supporters and medical professionals.

942629_202618583195572_1464234829_nThe Publicis Groupe employee resource network for LGBT employees and their allies, Égalité, participated in this year’s AIDS Walk New York with a team of roughly 100 employees raising money and 40 walking. Collectively they raised $19,420 for GMHC and braved a day-long rain storm during the walk. Égalité and other Publicis employees who participated continued the rich tradition of service held by the Publicis Groupe.

Since 1986 almost 900,000 people have walked, raising an astounding 128 million dollars in support of GMHC, which is now one of the largest AIDS service organizations in existence. The 28th annual AIDS Walk New York brought a massive crowd of 30,000 brave participants to Central Park in the non-stop rain. Dozens of corporate sponsors, hundreds of corporate teams, and tens of thousands of individual walkers collectively raised over 5.5 million dollars and online donations of roughly 4.4 million for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Craig R. Miller“At the first AIDS Walk New York, thousands of visionary men and women, some of whom are still working with us today, came together as a community to change the course of the epidemic,” said Craig R. Miller, AIDS Walk New York Founder and Senior Organizer. “Through this effort, we have done just that, and the end of AIDS is now within our grasp. Today’s incredible turnout and fundraising result of $5,504,281 tells me the AIDS Walk New York community of today is as committed as ever to supporting GMHC and to giving rise to a generation free from HIV.”

The AIDS Walk New York is currently the largest AIDS fundraising event in the world. To get involved or donate today click here.
