Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Direct / Direct Response/Press & Poster / 2013

Some countries like Iraq, Egypt, Eritrea and Sudan are still practising capital punishment by hanging. The decision of life or death is frequently based on the arbitrariness of state leaders. The international print campaign ‘Hangman’ by The International Society for Human Rights aims to raise awareness of these grievances with striking posters at major airports. Using the principle of the popular game Hangman, the campaign makes it clear how easy it can be to help. Each observer will be challenged to finish the Hangman game before it’s too late, by donating $, C, £ or ¥ via text message.
