CERCA Turn off the lights

November 2, 2008

CERCA, Children and Adolescents Center in Brazil, (Centro de Referencia da Crianca e Adolescente) used a print advertising campaign with a difference to help readers think twice about children being afraid of the dark. ““Pedofilia. Você pode não ver, más pode estar acontecendo” is translated in English as “Pedophilia. You might not see it but it could be happening”. The magazine advertisements featuring Emily, Peter and Annie were printed with florescent ink. When the lights are turned off readers are able to see the outlines of child abusers.
