Cultural/Context information for the jury

Since 2011, Syria has seen the barbaric use of chemical weapons, state-sponsored terrorism, gun attacks, car bombings and air strikes on a weekly basis. Social media has been flooded with millions of hashtags and posts in support of Syrians. But sadly, it hasn’t changed their reality. Today, over 13.1 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian relief. We need people to go beyond just talking about Syria and start donating towards their cause. To make people come face-to-face with the gruesome reality of Syria, we took the help of renowned photo journalists at ground zero. And created a series of communication that showed injured Syrians with hashtag-shaped band-aids that barely cover their wounds. We scouted social media for popular hashtags used to support Syria and used them to create a narrative that makes people realize that hashtags don't heal. And the only way to make a difference, is by donating.
