Public Awareness

Public Awareness of ongoing testing

Despite years of campaigning, animal testing has yet to be consigned to the history books where it belongs. However, partial legislative victories have led to the common misconception that animal testing, especially for cosmetics,  no longer takes place.

It is vital therefore that the public is reminded that this cruel and unscientific practice does continue in many areas of the world. Support is essential for public awareness activities to ensure that this issue remains high on the political agenda. We are therefore seeking to reward excellence and innovation by organisations working in this field.

There is more detail in the Background Paper for the 2013 Public Awareness Prize.
