SHARE YOUR STORY, MAKE A DIFFERENCE

YOU COULD WIN A $20,000 CASH GRAND PRIZE

WHAT ARE THE VOICES OF IMPACT AWARDS™?

The Voices of Impact Awards™ is a celebration of the voices that inspire humanity. These are voices like yours, with stories that teach us about our past, provide a framework for the present, and empower us to envision the future. Your experiences, your challenges, and your triumphs contain valuable lessons from which we all can learn.  

 

If you think of a broad speaking platform like TEDx, mixed with an awards show like the Grammy's, with a touch of the excitement of American Idol, that's us. We're the platform where stories will be shared, heroes will emerge, and lives will be changed.

 

Maybe you’ve never thought of sharing your story, perhaps you’ve never been asked, but if you’ve ever wanted to make a difference, now is your chance. 

THIS IS FOR YOU IF YOU WANT TO...

  • Help shape society, be a part of the solution, and help solve some of the world's biggest problems.
  • Be recognized as a thought leader, as an authority in your field, and be honored for your contributions.
  • Become a keynote speaker, get more speaking engagements, and increase your income through speaking.
  • Be interviewed on virtual stages, videos, and on podcasts.
  • Get free training to help you develop your speaking skills, advance in your career, or grow your business.
  • Develop and showcase your power to influence, persuade, and inspire others. 

 

IN A NOISY WORLD IT'S HARD TO GET NOTICED!

Have you noticed how much content there is out there and how many people are trying to get your attention? So many ads, photos, videos, articles, ads, blogs, websites, podcasts, ads, and did we mention ads? It's overwhelming! 

 

But, here you are with something important to say. You have ideas, stories, and solutions that the world may be looking for but you cannot get heard above all the noise! 

 

Maybe you've sent pitches to podcast shows, applied to speak on TEDx stages, and offered to speak for free at events only to be ignored, or worse yet, you've been told "we only hire speakers with experience," or you've been told you have to have a following of 40,000 people or greater (Ugh!). You've written blogs and articles, and you even created videos on TikTok only to get lost among a sea of pranksters, the latest dance craze, or that oh-so-adorable cat in a barber's chair getting a haircut.

 

It seems that the only way to get noticed is to do something outlandish in the hopes that you get a little bit of media attention. But, with so many crazy people out there doing crazy things, even the most outlandish act is no longer enough.  So, there you are working night and day trying to figure out the best platform for your message. You invest multiple thousands of dollars in sponsored ads, all the while testing an endless array of elements, and maybe, just maybe, your ad will be seen by a few people aside from your family and friends.     

 

The sad reality is that most people simply do not have the money, connections, or resources that are required to bring their stories and messages to a wide audience. Oh yeah, we've been there, and frankly, we are tired of it!  

THIS IS YOUR GATEWAY TO THE GLOBAL STAGE!

It's not easy to reach the masses with your story or message. But your story deserves to be heard.  That's why we created the Voices of Impact Awards™, to level the playing field and give you the power to become extraordinary. To give you a global stage to share your story regardless of who you know, how many followers you have, or how much you can sell from the stage. We created these Awards to celebrate you, and honor you for your passion and desire to make a positive impact on the lives of others. 

 

Make no mistake about it, we are going to change lives. Yours, ours, and the lives of all the people who will listen to your story. Your voice is the great equalizer. Regardless of what you do, where you came from, or how you got here, your voice is what can get you to where you want to be. We teach you, we equip you, and we give you the opportunity to be seen and heard. The rest...is up to you. 

 

So make the choice to make a difference, and apply right now.

HOW DOES THE AWARDS PROGRAM WORK?

It all begins when you fill out your Official Application. Then, there are 3 Stages to the Awards Program: 

STAGE 1

Stage 1 is where you get to shine!  Here you will share with us your mission, your purpose, and a little bit of your story, and tell us why you should be selected to receive the Blue Diamond Award and $20,000 grand prize. There is no video required at this time. After completing Stage 1 and passing our compliance review, look for an email with how to move on to the next stage.  

STAGE 2

The excitement builds as you advance to Stage 2. This is where you will record and submit a 2-minute video of you delivering the heart of your story. Our judges will be looking for your joy, your passion, and the impact of your message. Not sure what to say? No problem, we have a free Ebook that will guide you to connect with the superhero in you!

After reviewing thousands of entries from amazing people just like you, 10 finalists will be invited to present live on stage in front of our esteemed panel of judges and a live audience in Denver, Colorado, on Saturday, September 23, 2023.
