The Honesty Oscars are a creation of ONE and Accountability Lab, and are in no way affiliated with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, or the Oscars.

Neither ONE nor Accountability Lab own any of the content nominated for the awards, nor do either have an interest in the outcome of the voting.

In the spirit of the awards, ONE and Accountability Lab have tried to eliminate conflicts of interest. To that end, our employees, principals and family of those people are not eligible for nomination.

No prizes will be awarded to the nominees or winners. The only “prize” a nominee or winner will receive is favorable recognition.

To avoid doubt, there is no purchase or sale necessary to enter or win.
