iO gives shape to petition in primetime with Amnesty World Cup
20 November 2022
Amnesty International has long been campaigning with the hashtag #PayUpFIFA to raise the human rights violations that came with hosting the World Cup in Qatar. Indeed, Amnesty is calling on FIFA to compensate the migrant workers and their relatives with at least as much prize money as the World Cup winner receives. For now, without any real concessions.
VRT is not avoiding the issue either and will pay the necessary attention to this topic.
iO took a symbolic approach and let Amnesty present its version of the World Cup as a tribute to the hardest-working team at this tournament.
The 3D World Cup took shape through every signature submitted online, as each signature resulted in an additional printing session to complete it. The result can be seen on the petition platform's thank-you page. This way, Amnesty continues to put pressure on FIFA even during the World Cup.
The campaign runs on VRT channels and was made possible thanks to the willing cooperation of all parties involved.
