THE HEINZ AWARDS
CELEBRATING EXTRAORDINARY ACHIEVEMENTS
Established by Teresa Heinz in 1993 to honor the memory of her late husband, U.S. Senator John Heinz, the Heinz Awards celebrate the extraordinary achievements of individuals in the Arts, the Economy, and the Environment. The program is administered by the Heinz Family Foundation of Pittsburgh, with awardees receiving a monetary award of $250,000 and the coveted Heinz Awards medallion.
SHARED IDEALS REALIZED
In order to elevate the compelling stories behind each of the Heinz Awards recipients, W|W created a custom digital design system that effectively brings these powerful narratives to life, echoing the work of the Heinz Family Foundation and the Heinz Awards program. The site was engineered with a robust directory that houses past recipients and is easily searchable by award cycle/year and category.
