Cincinnati Bell, CBTS Chosen as Finalists for Best Use of Imagery in Shorty Social Good Awards

Cincinnati Bell (CBB) and CBTS have been selected as a Shorty Social Good Award Finalist in the Best Use of Imagery category, the companies said.

The award submission is a result of the efforts of the company´s leaders and employees who participated in Pride, including building a seven story Post-it Note art installation, lighting up company headquarters in Pride colors, and marching in the Pride Parade.

The Shorty Social Good Awards honor the social good initiatives brands, agencies, and nonprofits are taking to make our world a better place. While the Shorty Awards have long honored the best of social media, this competition includes efforts made by organizations to improve sustainability and diversity internally, foster globally minded business partnerships, and increase employee community and civic engagement.

Finalists were selected by members of the Real Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences, comprised of luminaries from advertising, media, entertainment and technology. The group includes Ogilvy Vice President of Social Change Kate Hull Fliflet, Matchfire Founder and CEO Chris Noble, Former White House Creative Director and Digital Strategist Ashleigh Axios, and ATTN: Partner Brad Haugen. Social Good Award winners will be announced and honored at the ceremony on Thursday, November 14th, in New York City.
