Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Writing for Advertising / Writing for Press & Poster Advertising / 2014

Offenders are significantly less likely to re-offend if they find a job. Though they often have the qualifications and the experience, 75% of employers admit to rejecting applicants with a criminal record within seconds. So we decided to get people to re-assess this prejudice. Using the familiar layout of CVs, we confronted them with the issue. Instead of featuring the usual qualifications and employment history, the CV is a stream of consciousness from an interviewer, who, on discovering a job candidate is an ex-offender, immediately rejects them.
