Back in January, IOM X worked with an amazing youth-led organization called Project Liber8 on a human trafficking awareness-raising workshop with young YouTubers and media students called Advoc8: The YouTube Edition. Check out this blog post for more information about the workshop.

 

A few months later this creative crew had created six videos highlighting sexual exploitation, forced begging and, the vulnerability of migrants, all while also promoting the national emergency number in Malaysia -999- that you can call if you’re in trouble or if you think someone else is.

On April 14, 2016, a free screening party was organized at a cool community mall in Kuala Lumpur called Publika and over 200 people attended! The videos were screened and the audience voted for their favourite. The audience votes, plus the number of view each video got on YouTube, determined the winning video.

Before we tell you who won, watch the videos for yourself.
