Chains and Wings | Turkey

This is my last poster for this contest. When I started to think about this contest, there were only ”chains” and ”wings” on my mind. So I thought human trafficking take freedom from people. People should live with freedom. They shouldn’t be captured or in chains. And I thought ”Birds cant live without their wings too. Because its their freedom”
In the end I created this image. A bird breaking the chains with its beak. And flying away.
If you can’t think a bird without its wings, you can’t think a human without its freedom neither.

Humans. Not Dolls. | India

The poster consists of an illustration depicting humans as dolls, stripped off of their will power, forced to walk down a path of slavery and seen as mere objects to be used. All this, paired along with the bold ‘END THIS MODERN SLAVERY’ is meant to bring awareness regarding human trafficking to the public eye.

Uncage | Ireland

The narrative of this piece was to make a scene that was as uplifting and full of hope as possible, considering the very serious subject matter. Jamaica will always be a historically known country of freedom and liberation and so for this reason the narrative is one of this liberation. I wanted to include many elements that were directly related to Jamaican culture as visual metaphors for Jamaica itself and so the the national bird of Jamaica(Swallow-Tail Hummingbird) is used to be representative of the victims of trafficking. The Jamaican jungle, with its indigenous flowers are the Jamaican heart as they reach out, with extended arm-like vines pulling and breaking the cage open, taking the power away from the greyed out (shadowed) figures of oppression. Those without color. Without a soul.
