Poster Award 2020 – Stop Forced Live Organ Harvesting in China

The event objective is elaborated on the official website.

Authors and artists at different era have used their expertise to record the great changes of times. From George Orwell, the author of ​Animal Farm ​ to artists like Käthe Kollwitz, Francisco Goya, and Ai Weiwei, activists have been using their sensitive mind to speak for the unfair system, people suffering from autocracy, and themselves.

For over ten years, investigations carried out by lawyers, reporters, prosecutors and doctors worldwide have revealed that the Chinese regime had been systematically doing forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience. Such atrocity is meant to supply the need of the huge transplant industry. With the phenomenon that patients worldwide all flock to China for organ transplants, forced organ harvesting has become a global crime.

History always repeats itself. No matter how the evil looks like, we shall not keep silent once it bullies the goodness again. Let’s be the witness of history by speaking for this inhuman persecution!

The judging process consisting of a preliminary review and a final election will be hosted by our jury composed of well-known experts.
