The Power of the Arts award for promoting art and culture was initiated by Philip Morris GmbH in 2017. The funding as well as the entire infrastructure for the competition is provided by Philip Morris GmbH. This award is in no way associated with the company’s products.
The promotion of non-profit projects is a part of Philip Morris GmbH’s long-standing tradition of social and cultural engagement.
Philip Morris GmbH sponsors projects for the socially and physically disadvantaged, projects against domestic violence, projects for the promotion of women’s issues, for education, and for income-generating measures for young adults. The company has been well known since the 60s as a patron of large-scale collections, exhibitions, and artists. Since 2017, the company has now been combining both of these aspects via The Power of the Arts, supporting non-profit institutions which use art and culture to promote social participation for all.
The company’s socio-political commitment is summarized under Corporate Democratic Responsibility. Its study “How we really live” (Original German title: “Wie wir wirklich leben”) investigates in partnership with the Rheingold Institute the citizenry’s expectations on politics as well as how they want to be involved in political decision-making processes. In Germany’s super election year of 2021, Philip Morris GmbH initiated Power for Democracy, a new award for projects which work to strengthen democracy.
