Action Ukraine Called Upon to Assist in Voter Awareness Campaign
Action Ukraine was recently chosen by the OSCE Project Coordinator in Ukraine (PCU) to assist in a voter awareness campaign, utilizing audio visual material, for the 2015 local Ukrainian elections.
The campaign has been implemented with the participation of the Central Election Commission (CEC), within the framework of the ‘Developing Election Training Capacity and Enhancing Voter Awareness’ project.
With the main aim of informing Ukrainian voters about their rights, election procedures, and the importance of elections in general, the Action team has produced numerous Public Service Announcements (PSAs) in cut-out 2D computer animation featuring stock video footage insertions, to be aired on national TV channels.
Each PSA deals with a number of sensitive subjects including ‘vote buying’, ‘voting in different types of settlements and the mandatory powers of the elected persons’, ‘voting procedure and voters’ lists’ and more. As part of the contract, Action Ukraine has also produced five audio PSAs to be broadcast on national radio stations.
