Dear friends!

I would like to express my gratitude to the participants of the International  Youth Contest  of Social Anti-Corruption Advertising “Together Against Corruption!” that took place in 2018  with participation of young people from Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

In 2019 the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation initiated a similar Contest for the young people not only from member states of the Intergovernmental Anti-Corruption Council but also from the BRICS states.

Therefore, the geographic scope of the contest has been singnifically expanded, and I am very pleased to welcome for the first time the participants from Brazil, India, China and the South African Republic.

This project is really unique. It is invited to draw attention to one of the most important problems – corruption. The participants are requested to create social anti-corruption advertisements in video and poster format on the topic “Together Against Corruption”.

Every contest is a competition of ideas, positions and experience of people who care. We expect that the contest works will reflect modern governmental mechanisms for combating corruption at all levels and all aspect of social life.

Contest works will be accepted from June 1 to October 1, 2019 through the Contest Official Website

The official award ceremony for winners of the Contest will be held in December 2019 and devoted to celebrate the International Anti-Corruption Day.

I sincerely wish all the participants success, vivid emotions, self-belief and, of course, victory!

Yury Chaika
Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation
