ABOUT FAIRPLAY

The impact of corruption on our communities cannot be accurately conveyed in numbers or reports. To understand how it affects the lives of people, we must listen to their voices.

Fair Play is a global competition for original songs by young bands (18-35 years) on the theme of anti-corruption. Bands are invited to enter the 3rd edition by submitting their anti-corruption music videos online from 24 April to 24 July 2012. The 3 winning bands will win a trip to Brazil to participate in the 3rd GYAC Voices Against Corruption Forum and perform live in Brasilia!

Fair Play is an awareness-raising program and network building effort to connect socially conscious artists and citizens worldwide, brought to you by the JMI Foundation, the World Bank Institute and the Global Youth Anti-Corruption Youth Network.
