IFEX International Day to End Impunity Poster Contest:

The International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX) invites all to submit entries for the inaugural International Day to End Impunity poster contest with the purpose of drawing world’s attention to impunity through these posters that depict impunity in some way.

IFEX is the most extensive community of leaders defending and promoting freedom of expression around the world. IFEX shares content, analysis and tools on free expression cases and trends, campaign on critical issues, and support collaboration to increase their members’ effectiveness.

IFEX members chose the symbolic date of 23 November for the International Day to End Impunity because it’s the anniversary of the Ampatuan massacre, the single deadliest day for journalists in recent history.

The purpose of the day is to raise public awareness and showcase the work of organizations working for justice for those being persecuted for practicing their right to freedom of expression.
