The following are the seven posters awarded with a special mention by our partner chiarities.
The NGOs participating in Good50x70 have selected these works because they best represent
their mission and values.
The FIFA World Cup 2010 was set in South Africa.
For the first time, the World Cup was hosted by an African country. This was a unique opportunity for the whole continent. On this occasion, AMREF promoted various important funding and awareness campaigns.
AMREF asked participants in Good50x70 to reflect on the social role played by football.This sport is well-known to be a great business. It is also a chance for Africa to redeem, socialise, stop ethnic fighting and war. Football can convey a positive message and promote the prevention of illness and drug use.
It is not an easy task to represent graphically these concepts, but many posters answering to AMREF’s briefing have reached this goal.
Our special mention goes to “Green Fields of Hope” by Brian Huezo because it is clear and effective. It communicates the unity experienced by Africans during the World Cup. Strong bonds are vital to end wars, humanitarian emergencies and illness.
Football is a great means to achieve unity.

The author has interepreted well the theme we have proposed.
His work has been chosen because it was the most akin to our communication style thank to its content, graphics and message.

The poster highlights very well each citizen’s duty in the fight against mafias. Citizens should never be influenced by the widespread mentality promoted by mafias.
This illustration is appealing and stresses some of the main issues raised by social action against mafias.
This is why it is in line with the work and effort carried out by LILA.

“They were promised a sanctuary, they got a grave” by Stephen Kavanagh is based on a simple concept and its visual has a strong impact.
It shows how marine reserves, or sanctuaries, can be transformed into a grave for cetaceans. It depicts the fossil skeleton of a whale displayed in a museum. The skeleton represents a stark contrast with the idea of a sanctuary, which was created to ensure the survival of whales.
It demonstrated that, instead, even within sanctuaries the life of whales is constantly endangered by human activities.

I chose this poster because it represents in a simple and substantial way what Emergency does: it heals.

Giving voice to people who live in poverty is one of the main aims of Amnesty International’s “Dignity Campaign”.
Dignity can become a reality through adequate housing, basic healthcare, and education. Poverty is not just a lack of fundamental economic and social rights.
Poor people can’t influence key government decisions that affect their lives. Poverty is not inevitable. It is not a natural event. It can be avoided as it stems from the decisions of those in power. People who live in poverty should not be excluded from political participation.
States are required to grant universal economical, social and cultural rights along with civil and political rights.
People who live in poverty have a voice – let them be heard!
Powerful images carry powerful messages.
Good50x70′s work helps WWF not only to raise awareness about the threats to tigers in the wild, but inspires people to take action to save tigers and their natural habitat.
