Contenders at Cannes 2023: Maurice Blackburn – EXHIBIT A-i | Howatson+Company

Leading up to Cannes Lions, we showcase creative campaigns submitted from across the Asia Pacific.

Campaign Background


The most powerful evidence is visual. Yet for 10+ years, the Australian government has inhumanely detained refugees in offshore detention centres, banning cameras & journalists.

Only by making injustice visible, can we provoke change.

Introducing Exhibit A-i. Social justice law firm, Maurice Blackburn, conducted 300 hours of interviews with refugees, documenting the atrocities they faced in offshore detention.

With AI technicians & photojournalists, survivors generated the first visual evidence of their experiences.

This was submitted to parliament in a book and shared across PR, OOH & social.
