The International Youth Contest of Social Anti-Corruption Advertising “Together Against Corruption!” took place in 2018 with the participation of young people from Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
In 2019 the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation has initiated a similar Contest for the young people not only from member states of the Intergovernmental Anti-Corruption Council but also from the BRICS states.
Therefore, the geographic scope of the contest has been significantly expanded, and for the first time, the participants from Brazil, India, China and the South African Republic are invited to participate in this contest.
Participants are requested to create social anti-corruption advertisements in video and poster format on the topic “Together Against Corruption”.
