Say NO to Violence Against Women Ad Competition: Danish Designer Wins First Prize

Winner


Quote:
Designers from Denmark, Kosovo and France won the top three prizes in the UN European Ad Competition, Say No to Violence Against Women, UNRIC, the organizers, announced in Brussels 19 October.

Violence is not always visible by Danish designer Trine Sejthen won the first prize, 5,000 Euro, selected by a jury of specialists.
Treat me like a woman by artist Gjoke Gojani from Kosovo won the public vote prize.
Words by Raphaelle Moreau of France won the youth prize for participants under 25.
It was announced that a jury, chaired by French advertising guru, Jacques Séguela, had awarded the first prize to Trine Sejthen, a designer and photographer from Denmark.

The jury prize of 5,000 euros will be given to Ms. Sejthen at a ceremony in Madrid in late November, expected to be presided over by Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain, and organized by the Caixa Forum who donated the prize.

Over 2,700 entries from 40 European countries were submitted to the competition which was organized by UNRIC, the Brussels based UN Information Centre with the support of UN Women.

The aim of the competition is to increase awareness of a problem that affects one out of every three women worldwide. The winning ad will be published in several European newspapers at the conclusion of the competition on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Sejthen, the winner of the first prize, said she was surprised but very proud when she heard the news.

“I was very surprised. There are so many great entries and because this is the UN, a very important organization, this means a lot to me”, Sejthen told UNRIC on the phone from Copenhagen, where she has her own company with two other colleagues.

“I want people to think that this woman could be anybody, you can’t tell if she’s wealthy or poor, she could be your sister, friend or somebody next to you on the bus”, Sejthen says.

Over 120,000 votes were cast and the winner was Gioke Gojani from Kosovo. “I entered the competition because I was interested in the artistic side of designing a newspaper ad, but then I realized that the subject had touched my soul,” Mr. Gojani said when he accepted his prize, an iPad donated by the fashion company 3 Suisses, presented by UNFPA Belgian Goodwill Ambassador and media personality, Ms. Goedele Liekens. Speaking at the ceremony in Brussels, Ms Liekens pointed out that the media rarely report on the subject of violence against women since it is not considered “sexy”.

Raphaelle Moreau of France won the youth prize for her work “Words”. The youth prize winner was selected by Fabrica, the Benetton Group´s communications research centre.

The awards were announced at a ceremony in Brussels which also marked the opening of an exhibition of the works of the 30 finalists at the Harlan Levey Projects Gallery, realized with the support of the UN Office of the High Representative of Human Rights (OHCHR). The exhibition in Brussels is the first of many in Europe, including displays in Moscow, Prague and Kiev.
Violence against women is something the media doesn't cover enough
For each case that is known, there are hundreds of cases that we will be never known. And this doesn't happen only in fucked up countries, it happens everywhere, even here, close to my home.
Once i was going to face a charge of aggression because after having seen an unknown dude slapping reatedly in the face an unknown woman (she turned out to be his wife) in front of two children i didn't resist and overreacted. Surprisingly, some Witnesses saved my ass by telling a story not matching what really happened. Actually, to spend some years in prison wouldn't have been that painful for me, but I've been so lucky to avoid it.
Don't turn your head when you see a woman getting abused.
If you are a MAN.
A man abusing a woman is NOT a man, so no courts in this world can condemn you if you put the word END to such a barbarity.
No matter the way you do that.
Be creative, or smart, or evil, or just call the police. But stop it.

Re: Say NO to Violence Against Women Ad Competition: Danish Designer Wins First Prize

I think the most haunting and powerful one is the poster featuring the old couple. Sadly this subject is all too familiar to me as well, as both my aunt and one of my friends have been in a relationship with a very abusive man. I think it's really not my business to tell all the shocking details about their experiences but all I can say is that I cannot believe how sick and cruel some people can be toward the 'loves of their lives'

Not to be an asshole, but why not have a campaign against violence completely?

It's not like western society is unaware of people who beat their spouses.

Quote:
roughly 6 million women a year are victims of some level of domestic violence in the United States. Of these 6 million women, 1.8 million are seriously assaulted every year. These estimates are based on surveys made in 1975, 1985, and 1992.

However, it is widely ignored that the same studies consistently found that an equal number of men were experiencing domestic violence and an even greater number, 2.2 million men per year, are being seriously assaulted by their female partners.
