Ladies and gentlemen!
We are proud to announce to you... the winners of Fair Play 2016
After receiving submissions from activist musicians from all around the world, we have selected the winners of FAIR PLAY Anti-Corruption Youth Voices 2016. This edition the international jury has decided to select not one, but three winners!
The three bands are now on their way to Panama where they will perform and participate at the 17th International Anti-Corruption Conference that will run from the 1st to the 4th of December, making their voices heard at the most important anti-corruption event in the world.
They will perform on Friday the 2nd of December at the Plaza Catedral (Casco Antiguo) in the old town of Panama. The concert starts at 20:30 sharp! Oh, and did we mention that we have a special performance from Fair Play Ambassador Badiaa Bouhrizi!
So, without further ado, here are this year's winners.
