Earth Awards Announced Tonight!

The winner of The Earth Awards is due to be announced in just under 12 hours, this evening at around 11:15 EST. (4:15am UK - but you'll wait up, right?)

At the briefing this morning we learnt that only one of our team need be interrogated interviewed live, on camera, this evening, by Emmy award winning journalist Charlie Rose...* We met the daughter of the Malaysian Prime Minster, and met the Editor of Wallpaper Magazine. We had our details and a photo taken for their blog and (fingers crossed) maybe we'll even get something in print. We'll be meeting the other political guests along with the selection committee, esteemed New York glitterati and press, at the VIP Champagne Reception this evening.

But (more importantly?) this briefing was also our first opportunity to meet our fellow finalists, a set of genuinely intriguing individuals with truly engaging projects, many of whom I will, doubtlessly, promote on this blog in due course.

I'll be twittering throughout, if you want up-to-the-second info, otherwise wish us luck & we'll profile the winner tomorrow.

*Yes, it'll be me and no I am not at all scared to be interviewed about US politics by a guy who has famously interviewed President-elect Obama. Honest.
