Fair Play is a global movement of young artists speaking out against corruption. Fair Play holds a bi-annual competition where young bands can submit music videos online that tackle issues around corruption in their community. The best bands are selected to perform at the International Anti-Corruption Conference or IACC (the world's largest anti-corruption event).
Fair Play also organises local artist-driven events around the world, where issues around corruption are directly addressed by those facing them. The powerful messages of these songs from our community are shaping the world and letting the corrupt know that their days are numbers and that we will bring an end to impunity!

Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) is the largest youth music NGO in the world, created in Brussels, Belgium, in 1945 with the mission to "enable young people to develop through music across all boundaries". With a vast array of activities, JMI has established four priority activity fields: Young Musicians, Young Audiences, Youth Empowerment and Youth Orchestras & Ensembles.
With member organisations currently in 40 countries and contact organisations in another 15, JMI is a global network providing opportunities for young people to engage with music. The JMI network reaches over 6 million young people aged 13-30 per year through more than 40,000 activities, which embrace all styles of music, and coordinates cross-border exchange opportunities on the international level.
JMI places empowerment, with its emphasis on social inclusion and cohesion, at its core. For over 60 years, JMI has been 'Making a Difference through Music', using the power of music to bridge across social, geographical, racial and economic divides and creating a platform for intercultural dialogue.
Transparency International is a global movement sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. Founded by a few passionate individuals in 1993, today the organisation is present in more than 100 countries, the movement works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change.
Much remains to be done to stop corruption, but much has also been achieved, including: the creation of international anti-corruption conventions, the prosecution of corrupt leaders and seizures of their illicitly gained riches, national elections won and lost on tackling corruption, companies held accountable for their behaviour both at home and abroad.
THE IACC (INTERNATIONAL ANTICORRUPTION CONFERENCE)
The International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) is the world’s premier global forum for bringing together heads of state, civil society, the private sector and more to tackle the increasingly sophisticated challenges posed by corruption. Established in 1983, the IACC takes place usually every two years in a different region of the world, and hosts from 800 to 2000 participants from over 135 countries worldwide.
The IACC advances the anti-corruption agenda by raising awareness and stimulating debate. It fosters networking, cross-fertilisation and the global exchange of experience that are indispensable for effective advocacy and action, on a global and national level. The conferences also promotes international cooperation among government, civil society, the private sector, and citizens by providing the opportunity for face-to-face dialogue and direct liaison between representatives from the agencies and organisations taking part.
