Results and Effectiveness:

Within hours of the posters going up, radio stations aired stories and interviews with the ACF’s CEO. Over 4,500 BLOGs carried the imagery and supporting comments. Suddenly this neglected issue was being openly discussed.

Creative Execution:

Child-sized mannequins were dressed in kids’ clothes. Posters were then glued over the mannequins. These “invisible” posters could be found in high foot-traffic areas, right around Sydney.

Insights, Strategy and the Idea:

A recent spate of child neglect cases received scant coverage in the local press. The issue of ‘neglect’ tends to get overlooked, while violent and sexual abuse dominate public discourse. The ACF (Australian Childhood Foundation) approached us to raise awareness for this often misunderstood little discussed and seldom confronted issue. There was virtually no budget.
