Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / TV & Cinema Advertising / TV Commercials 41-60 seconds / 2009

When the 'rich boy' sat on the sidewalk, people who were walking past stopped and talked to him, and asked him what was wrong and if they could help him. But when the same boy sat on the sidewalk with poor clothes, nobody stopped. The sign inquires, 'Why are some children our problem and some aren’t?'
