TEM hits the road with the 2014 Purpose Prize winners


July and August has sent the team on cross-country jaunts to document the latest Purpose Prize winners, a group of motivated, highly skilled, social entrepreneurs honored for their encore careers. One of the shoots required photojournalist Ed Kashi to don a full beekeeper's suit.  



For the 6th year in a row, TEM is privileged to work with ENCORE.org to provide video profiles of the winners and their contributions. We can't tell you who the winners of the $100,000 and $25,000 awards are yet, but stay tuned for the official announcement and accompanying TEM videos October 28, 2014.   

This week, the team is in San Francisco for our latest encounter with an Encore extraordinaire. With our recent short film Enemies to Allies published on MSNBC, our upcoming work on Chronic Kidney Disease in Nicaragua, and our continuing work with the International Women's Health Coalition, Mpala: Research Centre and Wildlife Foundation, and a host of other exciting projects-let's just say, we've been busy bees this summer.
