Awards News by H&M : On Tuesday, August 8th, Variety in partnership with H&M honored Rita Ora for her outstanding philanthropic work with the first ever Variety and H&M Conscious Award at the 2nd annual Power of Young Hollywood event. This event celebrates an esteemed group of young actors, musicians, digital influencers and more, whom are profiled in Variety's Power of Young Hollywood issue. The issue also featured the Youth Impact Report that profiles 25 and under actors, actresses, directors, musicians and artists who have made an impact in the business this year.

Rita Ora, the 26-year-old British pop star and fashion icon, is the first ever recipient of the Variety and H&M Conscious award. Ora, who immigrated to Britain as a child from Kosovo, has been active with UNICEF for several years, and was named as an honorary ambassador to Kosovo in 2015 for her work with UNICEF toward helping the country rebuild after the Balkan War. Rita has also worked with numerous other charity organizations, including amfAR, Sightsavers and the Small Steps Program and most recently the London Fire Relief Fund. She is passionate about worldwide humanitarian crises and particularly the plight of refugees.

Her extreme commitment to social good and empowering young people to follow in her footsteps is truly inspiring and in line with H&M's vision for a more sustainable future for people and the planet," says Marybeth Schmitt, North American Communications Director for H&M.
