THE FAIR PLAY COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
The impact of corruption on our communities cannot be accurately conveyed in numbers or reports. To understand how it affects the lives of people, we must listen to their voices.
Fair Play is a global competition for original songs by young bands (age between 18 to 35) on the theme of anti-corruption, integrity, and fighting for social justice. Bands are invited to submit their anti-corruption music videos online until 1st August 2018. The music video must be related to the theme of corruption.
Two bands will be selected to perform in Copenhagen, Denmark at the Fair Play live concert that will take place on 23 October 2018 in conjunction with the 18th IACC.
The top 3 winning bands of 2016 were invited to the 17th IACC to perform their songs that fight for social justice. Below are the top 3 songs for the competition held around the event in Panama.
‘Bonkey’ is a term in Liberian pidgin English for a corrupt individual. This video shows several scenes of struggling, everyday Liberian citizens who are adversely impacted by corruption in society.
The song and video vividly show the pain that society collectively feels as a result of corruption and is a call to action for reform and transparency at all levels.
