THE LINCOLN PROJECT WINS WEBBY PEOPLE’S VOICE AWARD

AWARD RECOGNIZES THE LINCOLN PROJECT’S CAMPAIGN AGAINST COMPANIES BANKROLLING GOP SEDITION

 

April 26, 2022 — Out of more than 14,000 entries and after nearly two million total votes cast, the public awarded The Lincoln Project a 2022 Webby People’s Voice Award for TLP’s campaign to hold corporations accountable for bankrolling members of Congress who tried to overturn the 2020 election.

The People’s Voice Award was in the Social Category for News & Politics (Series and Campaigns).

The Lincoln Project’s ad campaign was a multi-pronged approach, making surgical strikes at targeted corporations (Toyota, Package Deal) while simultaneously warning other companies how backing sedition was brand poison (Branded).

The campaign was so effective that large companies issued press releases the same day an ad was released with pledges to end financial support of politicians complicit in the assault on our democracy.

“We thank the Webby Awards, and everyone who voted, for their recognition of the campaign and the team’s hard work,” said Reed Galen. “This campaign was made to hold corporations accountable and ensure they never put profits ahead of supporting democracy and our democratic institutions. We are grateful and invigorated by the support we’ve received.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
