See This Year’s Winning Global Media Competition Entries

What do you get when you call for creators around the world to stand up to Big Tobacco? More than 800 videos and social media graphics calling out the industry for the harms it causes, from creators across 43 countries.

It was all part of this year’s Global Media Competition, an annual contest organized by the Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control, a partner in STOP. The competition gives creators the chance to spark positive change by raising awareness of the tobacco industry’s duplicitous business practices.

This year’s contest theme was “Disaster in Disguise: Tobacco Companies’ Environmental Harms.” From highlighting the industry’s role in deforestation to decrying its attempts to cover up its environmental harms, contestants artfully conveyed how tobacco devastates not only global health, but the health of our planet, as well.

Check out the creative and courageous winning entries, chosen by a panel of judges and online voters.
