Awards recognize productions, content and individuals whose contributions increase public awareness of environmental issues and inspire green conscious responsibility.

The Environmental Media Association (EMA) announced Wednesday the 2015 nominees for its upcoming 25th anniversary Environmental Media Awards, with Mad Max: Fury Road, Interstellar and Virunga each earning a nod. 

EMA's awards annually honor and recognize film and TV productions, individuals and content that increase public awareness of environmental issues and inspire green conscious responsibility.

"Over the past 25 years of this award show, it never ceases to amaze us of all the great work that has been done to further highlight the achievements of those who lead by example through environmentally conscious programing, filmmaking and production," EMA president Debbie Levin said in a statement.

This year's awards, jointly presented by Lexus and Toyota, will be held Oct. 24 at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank.
