Posted on by Brandon Klein

International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) argues that the Internet has become a weapon in defense of Human Rights, which many governments censor, restrict, prohibit and, above all, fear. Their award-winning advertising campaign, “Scared Dictators” shows Hugo Chavez (Venezuela), Raul Castro (Cuba) and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran) attempting to escape a mouse, a computer mouse. The series was awarded with silver and bronze medals for Poster at the Clio Awards in New York, in May 2009, was a winner at the Cresta International Awards 2009, and a bronze award at the New York Advertising Festival.
