A big Thank you from Transparency International
thank you all so much for your engagement and for making this beautiful project a great success! We have a great personal thank you note directly from Transparency International. They said "This is the thank you note we prepared for the Community –and we mean every word!" So here it goes:
"Dear Jovoto Community
Congratulations and a big thank you to all of you who invested time and talent into creating a design for our Party’s Over campaign! You produced 372 ideas with over 1892 variations. Through your comments we could see that many of you considered this as an opportunity to learn more about the consequences corruption has in our lives.
Many commented on the complexities uncovered along the way and the challenge of representing visually the concepts of corruption and impunity. At Transparency International, we applaud your efforts to deepen your knowledge on corruption issues, your dedication to help us make this campaign a success, and we hope this experience has enriched your perspective.
We were pleased to see how many of you took our feedback to give new life or new direction to your ideas. This was by no means an easy task, we know, and appreciate your efforts. Some incorporated more colours in variations, others incorporated diversity in language or gender in the updated ideas.
We were particularly impressed by the deep sense of community reflected in the many comments and feedback to each other, posting overall 4091 comments and awarding 11283 ratings. There was a positive and constructive approach to it, which embodies the spirit of "coopetition" anchored at the heart of the Jovoto experience.
We thank you all for taking part of your valuable time to participate in the "Party's Over" contest. Our jury will meet soon and we plan to get back to you in the next couple of weeks."
